A loan of $725 helped a member to buy rice seed, potash, and to pay a plowing fee.

Sokim's Group's story

Sokim is a local farmer from the Sa Ang district of Kandal province. Besides her paddy rice growing business on 1.5 hectare of farmland, her husband also supplements the family income by fishing.

Sokim has had her current business for 11 years. This business gives her about 31,700 KHR per day.

This is not the first loan for Sokim with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). After the successful loans that she has repaid completely, she feels confident she can pay her loan back on time, and upgrade her living in a gradual manner. Additionally, she can afford to build a new, decent house for her family.

Now, she forms a group of three to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy rice seed, potash, and to pay for a plowing fee.

She hopes that she can make more income than before.

In this group: Sokim, Sary, Chhoeurn
