A loan of $500 helped to purchase fertilizer.


Sokhon's story

Sokhon is 55 years of age and married. She and her family live in Battambang province's Thmor Koul district in Cambodia. Sokhon has two sons and three daughters, all of whom are students. To earn a living for the family, Sokhon sells fish and her husband farms rice on a two-hectare plot of farmland. This will be Sokhon's sixth time requesting a loan via VisionFund, Kiva's partner. The previous loans have enabled her to keep her beloved children in school and, thanks to those loans, succeeded with one extra thing: securing food needs for her family. Now Sokhon is requesting a KHR 2,000,000 loan to support her husband's business by purchasing fertilizer. With the help of this loan, Sokhon hopes that her husband can smoothly run his business, adding more income to the family. She will also use the income generated by her business and her husband's to help keep her children in school.
