A loan of $525 helped a member to buy fertilizer for his farmland.


Sokong's Group's story

Sokong is 27 years old and married. He lives with his wife and two children in a rural area located in the Ou Reang Ov district, Cambodia. He is a farmer who grows rice and cassava--he has been in this business for seven years. The current business earns his family about 20,000KHR per day to feed the family but he manages to save about 8,000KHR each day.

This is the first loan for Sokong’s group with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now he is leading his group of two to ask for a loan. As the leader, Sokong wants to use his portion to buy fertilizer for his farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor. He hopes this loan will enable him to increase his family’s business and earn more income to make a better living.
