A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.

Sokhom's Group's story

Sokhom is 39 years old and married. She lives with her family in a rural area located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She has three dependent children to take care of, and now they are in school in the local area. Rice farming on 5 hectares of farmland is the primary source of her family’s income, and she has been in this business for 10 years. To add more income, she also sells desserts. With the current business, Sokhom can earn approximately 20,000 KHR (Cambodaian riels) per day and save about 10,000 KHR each day for future needs.

This is the eighth microloan for Sokhom with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. Now leading her group of five to apply for a loan, Sokhom will use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to increase her current business to earn a larger income to make a better living.
