A loan of $525 helped to pay a plowing fee and a weeding fee for her crops.

Sopha's story

Sopha, living in Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, is 31 years old and blessed with four children. To feed the entire family, she does cassava cropping on two hectares of farmland and runs a small grocery stall at home while her husband raises pigs for extra income. This is the business that she has had experience in for six years.
She is a five time borrower with Vision Fund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid her past loans with success and it has enabled her to lift her lifestyle progressively. Now, she is seeking a new loan to pay a plowing fee and a weeding fee for her crops. Additionally, she will use a portion of it to build a pigpen for her pig-raising business. Sopha hopes to earn more income from both businesses so she can build a bigger house for her family.
