A loan of $800 helped a member to buy rice seed, fertilizer, and insecticide for her farmland.


Soch's Group's story

A local farmer living in Kampong Cham province of Cambodia, Soch is a widowed mother who has eight children. To sustain a living, she grows cassava and rice. She is 59 years old and has 30 years of experience in the current business, which provides her a decent income of 13,900 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day.

Soch has been with VisionFund, Kiva’s partner, for the past five loan cycles. She has succeeded in using the past loans to better support her business and uplift her lifestyle gradually; especially, she can afford the daily food consumption of her household, too.

For this new cycle, she is a leader of a group consisting of three female members. As a group leader, she will use her loan portion to buy rice seed, fertilizer, and insecticide for her farmland. She highly hopes that she can boost her crop husbandry in a big scale and better her income.
