Som Orn's Group's story

Som Orn, age 33, is a citizen residing in a rural area of Ponhea Krek district located in Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. She is married and blessed with three kids, all of whom are dependent on her. Only two are currently in school, while the other one is too young to attend school. Som Orn makes her living by farming rice and raising pigs. To earn extra income for the family, she also works for others as a paid worker. Each day she is able to earn around 21,000 KHR and save approximately 11,000 KHR, after offsetting her daily living expenses.

Som Orn is leading a group of three female members, to take out a loan in the amount of 2,900,000 KHR in total. Som Orn, the group's leader, and one of her fellow group members, have been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for three loan cycles already. The other group member has been with VisionFund for just one loan cycle. Som Orn will use her portion of the new loan to support her business, by purchasing fertilizer and pig feeds. She would like to be able to build a warm, comfortable house for her family in the future.
