A loan of $750 helped a member to buy rice seed, fertilizer, and gasoline for water pumping.

Sokheab's Group's story

Sokheab, a young local farmer from Sa Ang district of Kandal Province, is 25 years old and has one son. To support her household, she sells grocery items at the front yard of her house and does rice cropping. Her husband works as a secondary school teacher in the local area. For the five years that she has involved in this business, she is able to earn up to 16,700 KHR per day.

In a group of three, Sokheab is on her fourth-loan cycle with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. Her past loans have, indeed, helped relieve her family's burden and improve their livelihood. Now, she and two joint members are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. Sokheab is going to use her portion to buy rice seed, fertilizer, and gasoline for water pumping on her rice farm. Additionally, she also will use a portion of it to buy more grocery items for reselling. She hopes that she can sustain both businesses in a good manner, so she can multiply her income for her children.
