A loan of $925 helped a member to buy petrol for pumping water and potash for her rice farm.


Sovan's Group's story

A rice grower from Kampong Cham province’s Tbaung Khmum district, Sovan is also one of the breadwinners in the family, which consists of three children. Besides working on a rice farm as the primary source of income, she also sells cooked rice while her husband works for others for a fee. She has been involved in the current business for eighteen years.

Sovan is in her fifth loan cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loans, which she has fully paid back, have empowered her to progressively improve her living standards. Now, she is part of a group of three, who are applying for a group loant totalling 3,600,000 KHR.

Sovan is the group leader. She will use her loan portion of 1,200,000 KHR to buy petrol for pumping water and potash for her rice farm. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so that she can sustain her living.

In this group: Sovan, Naisean, Oun
