Sokna's Group's story

Sokna, 31, is a local villager from Kampong Cham province. She has two children to care for. To deal with daily food needs, she does rice cropping and cassava planting as her primary source of income with her husband as the helper. To better feed the family, this couple also works for others for a fee for extra income. She has been engaged in the current business for 12 years, and is able to earn about 22,000 KHR per day. Sokha has had six loans already with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has succeeded in using the loans to make a better living than before. For this cycle, she has formed a group of three to apply for a new loan. The entire loan is for 3,800,000 KHR. As group leader, Sokna will use her loan portion to pay plowing fees and cassava gathering fees. She highly hopes that she can double her income and upgrade her lifestyle so that it will be better than before.
