Sokeng's Group's story

Sokeng is 40 years old and married. She lives with her husband and one son in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. The main source of family’s income is from growing cassava on two hectares of farmland. She has been in this business for four years, and she can earn about KHR 16,000 per day from the current business and manages to save about KHR 6,000 each day after deducting daily expenses. Sokeng is a first-cycle loan client with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, while the other member of her group is a third-time borrower. Now she and her group member are requesting a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava business. She hopes to grow her cassava fruitfully and timely so as to sell it for a good price in order to make a better living.
