A loan of $525 helped a member to buy rice for resale.

Sokha's Group's story

A 39-year-old mother originally from Sangke district of Battambang province, Sokha is a single woman who makes her living through growing paddy rice and working for others for a fee. She has been involved in this business for 10 years and is able to earn up to 22,200 KHR per day. Sokha’s first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) was three cycles ago. She has completely paid back the loan and it has sustained her lifestyle. This cycle, she forms a group of two to seek for a new loan in amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy 14 sacks of paddy rice for resale. She hopes this purchase will help her to stock more rice and sell it during the high in order to return her a good income to improve her living condition, to keep her children in school, and to expand her business into a larger scale.
