A loan of $725 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland.

Sovann's Group's story

A married mother of two children, Sovann is 33 years old and lives in a rural village of the Sangke district in Cambodia. All of her children are dependent on her and still in school. To support her family, she and her husband farm rice on six hectares of land as the main source of the family’s income. They have been in this business for several years.

Sovann has been with Kiva’s parter, VisionFund, for five cycles, while the other member of her group has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Sovann completely paid back the past loans which have helped her to expand her current business. Now she is leading her group of two to ask for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland and spend a portion of it for water pumping. Sovann hopes this loan will enable her to increase her family’s income to make a better living.
