A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a decent motor.


Sopheap's story

Sopheap, age 35, lives in a wooden house in a village in the Sampov Meas District. She is married and the mother of three children, all of whom are still in school. To support the family, she has been engaged in farming on 2.5 hectares of farmland. To add more income, she also buys rice to resell in her local area. Having been in this business for almost ten years, she is able to earn about $12 US per day and manages to save approximately $6 US each day after daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her farming business.

Sopheap has been with Kiva’s partner VisionFund for one loan cycle, and she completely paid back the loan. After this loan, she feels confident that she will make her life better. Now she is applying for another loan of $1,000 US. With this loan, Sopheap wants to buy a decent motor. This loan will enable her to have a proper motor for commuting in her family. She hopes to make a better life and to keep her children in school.
