A loan of $475 helped a member to build a decent latrine for her family.


Sokhoeurn's Group's story

Sokhoeurn, 40, is married and has three dependent children, two schoolchildren and one little kid. She and the rest of her family are living in a village located in the Samrong district of Takeo province, where silk weaving is the popular business in which to make a living. Like her neighbors, Sokhoeurn is also a silk weaver. She also owns another business, rice cropping. The 20 years' involvement in the current business has returned her about 13,000 KHR per day and she saves about 3,700 KHR each day after offsetting the necessary living expenses.

Sokhoeurn is on her seventh loan with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She feels confident that she can stabilize her business and provide the three times daily, decent meal for her family. For this loan, she forms a group of three to apply for the amount of 600,000 KHR, each. As the group leader, she will use her loan portion to build a decent latrine for her family. She hopes that this purchase will promote a good health practice for her kids.
