A loan of $600 helped a member to buy more grocery items to sell.

Sorn's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of the Srey Snom district of Siem Reap province, Cambodia, Sorn is a 48-year-old mother of seven children. Two of her children are dependent on her and still in school. She has been involved in selling grocery items for five years and supplementing her income by selling pork meats. The current business earns her approximately 22,000 KHR per day, and she manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Sorn has been with Kiva partner VisionFund for three cycles while the other member of her group is with VisionFund just this cycle. Sorn's past loans have helped her to build a new proper stall for supporting her grocery-selling business; all her loans have been repaid already. Now she and her group member are requesting a loan with VisionFund of 1,400,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, Sorn is going to use her portion to buy more grocery items to sell such as sugar, salt and eggs, and also plans to use a portion of it to buy more pork for resale. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income so as to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
