Shown in the picture is a 26-year-old married woman named Sokleap. She and her family reside in a rural area of the Prey Chhor district located in Kampong Cham province in Cambodia. Sokleap is blessed with a son who is still dependent on her and too young for school.

To offer a decent life to her family, she has a business farming rice. To add more income to the family, Sokleap’s husband plants cassava and works for others as a paid worker. Together, this couple is able to earn around 9 USD per day and save approximately 5 USD after deducting the daily expenses.

Sokleap is a first-time borrower with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. She is now requesting a 1,100 USD loan to purchase more plots of farmland. This hardworking woman, Sokleap, expects that, after receiving the requested loan, she can expand her business, earning greater profit and better supporting her beloved family. In the future, she also hopes that she can send her children to good schools.
