Sopheap's Group's story

Sopheap is aged 32 and is a local citizen from Dambae District of Kampong Cham Province. She is the mother of four children. Currently, she needs to support three of her children as they are still in school. She and her husband deal with their daily necessary expenses from their earnings from growing two hectares of cassava and a half hectare of paddy rice. She has been in this business for 14 years, earning about 26,300 KHR per day. Sopheap, a third-time borrower, has been joined by a first-time borrower, forming a group of two, to apply for a new loan with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner. The past loan has empowered her to sustain her living conditions. Now, she and her co-borrower are seeking for 1,400,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR, respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her entire loan portion to pay plowing fees and to purchase fertilizer. She hopes to triple her output and sell it at a good price, thereby helping her to make a good living.
