Sokunthea's Group's story

Sokunthea, 37, is a married mother of four children, three of whom are dependent on her and still in school while the other one works as a paid worker in the local area. Her family lives in a rural village of the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. To support the family, for the past fifteen years she has earned a living through working as a nurse in the village. This business earns her about 16,000 KHR per day and she can save about 6,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Sokunthea’s group consists of four female members who live in the same village and she is a first-time borrower with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is leading her group to request a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy school materials and a computer for her children. This loan will enable her to support her children's education with sufficient materials for their studying.
