A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees for her farmland.


Sokhom's Group's story

Sokhom is a 53-year-old farmer from Kampong Cham province. She is married and has four children, two of whom are still in school. She farms one hectare each of rice and cassava. She has been in this business for ages, and she is able to earn up to 21,300 KHR per day. She and her joint member are first-time borrowers with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner), and they are seeking loans of 1,000,000 KHR each. The leader of her group, Sokhom will spend her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing fees for her farmland. She dearly hopes that she can grow her cassava fruitfully and get a high yield with a high selling price so that she can buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more cash crops.
