A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his plantation.

Sok's Group's story

Sok resides in a rural village of Dambae district in Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. He is 50 years old and married. Sok has five children, three of whom are school-aged children and still dependent on him. To earn a living for the family, Sok and his wife have been growing rice and cassava for 30 years. In order to increase his family's income, Sok also catches fish. The current businesses that Sok operates have enabled him to earn around 55,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

This will be Sok's third time requesting a loan via Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. The loans that he obtained and successfully paid back helped him improve the living conditions of his family. This time, he is leading his group of two to apply for a loan with VisionFund. Sok, who is the leader, will use his portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his plantation. He hopes to increase his crop yield so he can sell more for a good price to better off his living conditions and keep his children in school.
