Sothy's Group's story

Sothy is 33 years old and married. In her family, there are five members including her three children who are still in school. The rest of her family is living in Sampov Meas district of Pursat province. To deal with the daily cost of living, she grows cassava and sells grocery items as the main source of income. Her 10 years of experience in the current business has returned her about 41,600 KHR per day. This cycle, she is a fifth-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid back her past loans, which have supported her business with good growth. Now, she is in a group of five to apply for a new loan. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to plow her cassava crop and to buy more grocery items for resale. She hopes that this loan will support her business at a good pace and sustain her living.
