A loan of $525 helped to purchase a head of buffalo.


Sopha's story

Sopha is 42 years of age and married. She and her family live in a rural village in the Kror Kor district of Cambodia's Pursat province. Sopha is blessed with two daughters and three sons, all of whom are school-aged children and still under her responsibility. To support the family, Sopha and her husband work as rice farmers. To add more income to the family, Sopha also raises pigs while her husband works as a paid worker. Each day, this industrious couple earns approximately 13,000 KHR. This is Sopha's very first time requesting a loan via VisionFund, Kiva's partner. She is seeking a KHR 2,000,000 loan to support the family's rice-growing business by purchasing a head of buffalo. Via the help of this loan, Sopha believes that she can smoothly operate the rice-growing business as well as generate more income for the family. She is willing to dedicate all the efforts that she has put into her work to advance her school-aged children's education as far as possible.
