A loan of $775 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland and to pay labor costs.


Soklim's Group's story

Soklim is 32 years old and married, with three children. She and her family live in a village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province.

To make a living, she and her husband have been planting cassava for 12 years, earning about KHR 40,000 per day. To create more income, Soklim and her husband work for others, for a fee, in the rubber fields.

Soklim is in her second loan cycle, while her co-member is just with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia, for this cycle. Soklim has successfully used the past loan to improve her family’s livelihood. Now Soklim is leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund Cambodia.

Soklim will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland; she will also use a portion of it to spend on labor costs. With this loan, she hopes to grow her crops better and produce higher yields in order for her to increase her family’s income.
