Sokkhy's story

Sokkhy, age 35, lives in the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province. He is the father of one schoolchild and two children who are too little for school.

His first loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) was four loan cycles ago. He has completely repaid his previous loan, which has supported his business and returned to him a decent income with which to support his family and keep his child in school.
