A loan of $300 helped a member to buy materials to build a proper latrine for her family.


Sophy's Group's story

Sophy, 33, lives in a rural area of the Ponhea Leur district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She has four children. To support her family, she has been farming rice, while her husband works in a garment factory, to better support her family. The current business earns their family approximately KHR 29,000 per day, and they can save about KHR 5,000 each day after daily expenses. Sophy’s Group consists of five members who live in the same village. This is her first microloan from Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She is now leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, she wants to use her portion to buy materials to build a proper, healthy, latrine for her family to use.
