Sokkhoeurn's story

Sokkhoeurn is 42 years old and married. She has six children, five of whom still depend on her, as some are still in school and some are helping with the family's business. The rest of her family also lives in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province.

For her children's sake, Sokkhoeurn grows cassava on one and a half hectares of farmland and plants paddy rice on two hectares. With 20 years of experience in this business, she is able to earn almost 40,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) and save about 13,000 KHR after deducting all expenses. Sokkhoeurn has worked with Kiva partner VisionFund as a six-time borrower. The past loans, which she has paid back successfully, have helped her to solve her daily financial hardships gradually. For this cycle, she is seeking 4,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer and insecticide and to pay for labor costs. She strongly believes that she will gain multiple outputs and make more income for her children's sake.
