A loan of $725 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay the fee for plowing the land.


Sokha's Group's story

Sokha is married and has been blessed with two kids — one is a schoolboy, and the other one is under-aged for schooling. Sokha is a rice grower from Moung Russey district, in Battambang province. She has managed a five-hectare area for growing only paddy rice, while her husband works for others for a fee for extra income, during his spare time. Having engaged for 10 years in the current business, she earns about 28,000 KHR per day.

Sokha and her fellow group member are on their third loan cycle with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has completely repaid her previous loan, and it has sustained her living in a good manner. As a group leader, she will use her portion of this new loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay the fee for plowing the land. She highly hopes that she can gain triple yield, compared to her previous harvest.
