A loan of $850 helped a member to purchase piglets to raise.


Soneth's Group's story

Soneth is a villager who lives in Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district in Cambodia. She is twenty years of age and married with two dependent sons. To make a living, Soneth raises pigs and plants cassava. Her husband also works for others as a paid worker to add more income to the family. Together, this hard-working couple is able to earn approximately 18,000 KHR daily and, after offsetting for daily expenses, save approximately 3,000 KHR for future needs. This will be Soneth’s fourth time requesting a loan via Kiva Field Partner, VisionFund. The previous loans have helped her to purchase piglets to run her pig-raising business, which enables her to generate extra income for the family. Soneth is now in need of money to purchase more piglets to raise in order to expand her business, generating even more income. Thus, she is leading a group of three female members to take out a loan in the amount of 3,400,000 KHR in total. Soneth’s hope is to earn as much income as possible to continually provide a decent life for her family and to send her beloved children to a good school in the future.
