A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her rice farm.


Sophal's Group's story

Residing in a rural village in the Srey Snom District of the Siem Reap Province, Sophal is married and blessed with two children who are still in school. For her children's sake and especially for their education, she grows rice as the only source of her family's income. For the five years that she has engaged in this business, she has been able to earn up to 10,000 KHR per day. In a group of three, she is the leader and the third-time borrower from VisionFund (Kiva's partner). In a wise manner, she has managed to pay back the past loans, which have improved her family's living condition. For this new loan cycle, she is seeking 1,300,000 KHR, and the other two co-borrowers are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her loan's portion to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her rice farm. She believes that she will gain more crop output so that she can make a decent income to sustain her family. Now, she and the other two co-borrowers are seeking a new loan.
