Sor's Group's story

Originally from Ek Phnom District of Battambang Province, Sor is 41 years old and married. She has seven children, four of whom are students while her other three daughters are working in Thailand. Sor earns a living through rice farming and fishing. She has been engaged in these businesses for 20 years. Sor has been with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, for five cycles and has successfully paid back her previous loans. Her living conditions have improved progressively as a result of her wise use of her loans. Now she and her group member are seeking 1,400,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR, respectively. Sor will spend her loan on harvesting fees for her rice field and to buy fishing nets. She hopes to receive a higher yield and catch more fishes, so she can multiply her income to sustain her current living conditions.
