A loan of $650 helped to lease a plot of farmland to grow more cash-crops.


Sophea's story

Sophea, 32, is married and blessed with three little kids all residing in Battambang province. The rest of his family relies on the agricultural activity of corn and cassava cultivation. This is the business that he has engaged in for 10 years and is able to generate about 20,000 KHR per day. Sophea is new to VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). He is seeking his first loan of 2,500,000 KHR in order to buy seeds, potash, insecticide, and to plow his farmland. Additionally, he will also use a portion of it to lease a plot of farmland to grow more cash-crops. He hopes that his loan will help him to make triple income so that he can set aside savings for his children when they are aged for schooling.
