Sophorn's Group's story

Residing in Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Sophorn is one of the breadwinners in a family consisting of three kids. She meets the daily food consumption expenses via a rice cropping business, which she has been in for several years and it earns her about 18,300 KHR per day.

Sophorn has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for five cycles, including this loan. She has utilized her past loans wisely to improve her living condition. For this cycle, she is in a group of three to apply for a new loan. Sophorn is the leader who requests for 1,400,000 KHR while the other two joint members are seeking for 1,000,000 KHR each. For Sophorn, she will spend her loan portion to buy potash as well as to pay the plowing fee. She hopes that she can get a better yield than before and make a good income.
