Sokhom's Group's story

A 32-year-old married woman, Sokhom is a villager living in a rural area of Dambae district located in Kampong Cham province in Cambodia. She is the mother of two dependent daughters, both of whom are school-aged children. Sokhom makes her living by farming rice and planting cassava. She has been in this business for four years, and she earns around 18,000 KHR daily of which she is able to save only 2,000 KHR for future needs after deducting their living expenses. This will be Sokhom’s fifth loan request via VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The previous loans have helped her to better support the family. To better support her farming business, Sokhom is leading a female group member named Srey Mab, who has already been with VisionFund for three loan cycles, to take out a group loan in the amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. As a group leader, Sokhom will utilize her loan to purchase fertilizer, to pay wages to farm laborers, and to cover household expenses. After receiving the requested loan portion and effectively using it, this hard-working woman believes that her business will provide her with a good-quality crop so that she can boost her income. Sokhom is willing to use the anticipated income to move her family ahead, build an appropriate house, and, most importantly, advance her children’s education further.
