A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy chicken feed.

Sopheak's Group's story

A 36-year-old resident from Sangke district of Cambodia, Sopheak is one of the wage earners in the family consisting of four children who are still in school. For her, animal husbandry (cows and chickens) is the primary source of her family's income, from which she is able to earn about 23,000 Riels (KHR) per day. She has engaged in this business for 5 years.

Sopheak has been with VisionFund (Kiva's partner) for ages, having had five loans; she has fully paid back her loans with success. Her past loans have supported her living condition better than before plus expanded her business.

Now, she has formed a group of three to seek a new loan. She and one of her co-borrowers are seeking 1,400,000 KHR each whereas the remaining female member is seeking for 1,200,000 KHR. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy chicken feed. She hopes to fatten her chickens in a healthy condition; hence she can make more income and keep all of her children in school.
