A loan of $650 helped to build a decent house for her family.


Sok's story

Sok, age 26 and married, is a peasant from Kror Kor District of Pursat Province who grows paddy rice on one and a half hectares. To earn extra income, her husband also drives a tricycle motorbike during his spare time. She has three children, one of whom is still in school. Sok is able to generate about 26,000 riels (KHR) per day from the current business that she has been with for 20 years.

Sok's prior loan was a first loan with Kiva’s partner VisionFund. She has utilized her past loan smartly to support her living in a standard condition, and she was able to buy household materials after offsetting basic needs. Now she is seeking 2,500,000 KHR in order to build a decent house for her family. She hopes to own proper housing conditions to live in, so she does not need to worry during unpredictable weather issues.
