A loan of $650 helped a member to buy additional piglets for raising.


Sokhim's Group's story

A rural citizen from the Ponhea Krek district of Cambodia, Sokhim is married and a 33-year-old mother of two children who are still in school. Together with her husband, she raises pigs, produces rice wine and provides a laundry service in order to cover her cost of daily living. She has been with this business for 10 years. Sokhim is a third-time borrower while her group member is a second-time borrower with Kiva's partner, VisionFund.

Sokhim used her past loan in a smart manner to provide better support for her business and her family. Now she is the leader in her group of two. She is applying for 1,400,000 KHR and her co-member is seeking 1,200,000 KHR. For her portion, she is going to buy additional piglets for raising. She hopes to fatten her pigs to a healthy condition so that she can sell at a high price and earn more income, so she can save some money to build a new house and expand her business gradually.

In this group: Sokhim, Sreypum
