A loan of $550 helped a member to buy eight sacks of fertilizer for his crop.

Sothhor's Group's story

Sothhor, a father of one son, is 62 years old and a rural villager from Moung Russey district's Battambang Province. He has been working on his half-hectare of farmland to provide daily sustenance to his household. It is a business which adds additional income to what he gets from his current occupation as a public worker in the government district office in a local area. He has been engaged in this business for 10 years and can earn almost 14,000 KHR per day.

Sothhor joined VisionFund one cycle ago and has paid back the entire loan with success. As a result, he can better support his family compared to before the loan. Now he is in a group consisting of two male members. The other member has just joined VisionFund (Kiva's partner) this cycle. Sothhor is applying for 1,200,000 KHR and his member is seeking 1,000,000 KHR. For Sothhor as a leader, he will use his portion to buy eight sacks of fertilizer for his farmland. He expects to reap a larger profit from his cash-crop so he can build a new concrete house for his family.
