A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her cassava farmland.


Sokneagn's Group's story

Sokneang, a peasant who grows cassava on two hectares of farmland, is a young mother of two schoolchildren, age 27 years old. To supplement the family’s income, she also sells sugarcane juice in the local area. With 10 years' involvement in the current business, she is able to earn up to 28,500 riels per day. She is in her second cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). After her past loans, which she fully repaid, she feels empowered to relieve her family’s burden and sustain her living. Now, she formed a group of two to apply for a new loan with VisionFund. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her cassava farmland. She highly hopes this purchase will increase her crop yield and bring in a good income for her children.
