A loan of $700 helped to buy a motor for commuting for her family.


Som's story

A villager from the Pursat province’s Sampov Meas district, Som is 24 years old and married. She has one dependent son, who is still small. The main source of her family’s income is from rice farming. To better support her family, Som also sells grocery items to earn additional income. Having been in this business for four years, she is able to earn a daily income of US $7 to support her family, and she can save about US $5 per day for their future needs.

This is the first loan for Som with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is applying for a loan to buy a motor for commuting for her family. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a decent motor for her family's use.
