Sophat's Group's story

Sophat is 25 years of age and a villager residing in Battambong province’s Sangke district, Cambodia. She is married and blessed with two kids (one daughter and one son), both of whom are still under her responsibility. To support her family, Sophat has been working as a rice farmer for 10 years, earning approximately 25,000 KHR per day and saving around 13,000 KHR after deducting her daily expenses. Sophat is leading a group to request a loan of 1,200,000 KHR each. For both of them, this will be their second time requesting a loan from VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan has helped group leader Sophat to better support her family and expand her business. With her loan, Sophat will buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her cultivated land and pay the fees for plowing her rice field and transplanting rice seedlings. Her hope for the future is to be able to boost her income even more so that she can better secure her family’s needs.
