A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer for her cassava crops.

Sosaath's story

Married with two young children, Sosaath, 24, lives in a village in the Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district, in Cambodia. The main source of her family’s income is from planting cassava on 1.5 hectares of farmland. Having farmed cassava for three years, Sosaath is able to earn a daily income of KHR 21,600 to support her family. She manages to save about KHR 6,000 per day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Sosaath with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is applying for a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes the fertilizer will help her increase her crop yields, so as to make a better living and help her family move into a bigger house.
