Socheata's story

Living in a rural village located in the Kandal province’s Kandal Stoeng district, Socheata is 28 and married with four children, all of whom are dependent on her and still in school. For the last five years, she has been farming rice as her primary business, while her husband is a soldier. The current business earns her about US$10 per day to make a living and she can save about US$5 each day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Socheata with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now requesting a loan of US$1,000, she is going to use it to buy house construction materials such as sand, wood, brick etc. With this loan, she hopes to finish her house completely for living in.
