A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Sokun's Group's story

A resident from a rural village of the Moung Russey district, Sokun is a 27-year-old mother of two children, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

The main source of the family’s income is from rice farming on a 5-hectare plot of farmland, while her husband supplements the income by catching fish. They have been in this business for six years. With the current business, Sokun can earn about KHR 28,000 per day to spend for daily expenses. Lack of working capital to support the business is the main challenge for her.

This is the fifth loan for Sokun with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She successfully paid back the loans, which have helped her to improve her family’s living conditions. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income so as to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
