Sokhom's story

Sokhom is a citizen residing in a rural area of Ponhea Krek district, located in Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. She is a 45-year-old, married woman who has five children, three of whom are still dependent on her. To provide a decent life for her family, Sokhom farms rice, plants cassava, and raises pigs. She is applying for a 3,000,000 KHR loan. For Sokhom, this is her first time requesting a loan via VisionFund (Kiva's partner). She will use a part of this loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay for labor, in order to keep her farmland in good shape. In the hope of fattening her pigs, she will spend the other portion of the loan buying pig feeds. This industrious woman, Sokhom, hopes to grow her business and dreams of giving her family a good future through all her hard work on her business.
