Sophat's Group's story

In her late 30s and a local citizen from Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Sophat is a farmer who strives for a living via rice cropping in order to support the two out of her four kids who are still in school. She has owned this business with the support of her husband for 10 years and is able to earn about 27,000 KHR per day. Sophat, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past three cycles, has fully repaid her past loan with success to improve her lifestyle. Now, she leads a group of two to apply for a new loan. Sophat will spend her loan portion to buy rice seed and potash, and to pay for plowing fees and reaping fees. She hopes that this loan will enable her to support her business on time to expand her business on a larger scale.
