A loan of $425 helped a member to buy fertilizer for his peanut farmland.


Sophal's Group's story

A hardworking farmer from the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Sophal is the father of a small son who is too young for schooling. To make a living, he grows rice and peanuts, with his wife as a helper. For the 10 years that he has been with this business, he has been able to earn up to 16,000 KHR per day.

In a group of three, Sophal has just joined VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) this cycle, while his other two co-borrowers have been with VisionFund for at least three cycle loans. The total requested loan amount of his microloan group is 1,700,000 KHR, of which 500,000 KHR is for Sophal. He will use this portion to buy fertilizer for his peanut farmland. He hopes to boost the output of his farm on time, so he can make more income for his family - especially his child.
