A loan of $325 helped a member to buy pig feed.

Sokhorn's Group's story

Sokhorn resides in the Thmor Koul district in Cambodia's Battambang province. She is 49 years old and married. She is also a mother of four children, one of whom (a son) is a student.

To make a living, Sokhorn operates a business, selling noodle with soup, which is known as Kuyteav in Cambodia. Sokhorn's husband supplements their income by raising pigs. This industrious couple earns around 60,000 KHR per day and saves approximately 28,000 KHR after offsetting the daily cost of living.

Sokhorn has been with VisionFund, Kiva's partner, for four loan cycles. With her previous loans, she succeeded in increasing her working capital and meeting her family’s food needs. Now, to support her husband's pig-raising business, Sokhorn is leading a group with one other member who has been with VisionFund for just one loan cycle to take out a new loan in the amount of 1,200,000 KHR in total. Sokhorn will spend her portion of the loan to buy pig feed. She hopes to earn more income from the pig-raising business and better support her family after receiving the loan and effectively using it.
