A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more ingredients to make her rice cakes including sugar, flour, etc.


Sopheak's Group's story

Sopheak, a married 35-year-old mother of two children who attend the local public school, is a villager from Banteay Meanchey province. To help support the family, she has been making Cambodia rice cakes for sale for many years, earning about 30,000 KHR per day.

Sopheak has received and repaid six previous loans from Kiva partner VisionFund, loans that have helped provide good living conditions for the family and enabling her to maintain a good cash-flow in her business. Now leading a group of two in this new loan request, Sopheak will spend her portion to buy more ingredients to make her rice cakes including sugar, flour, etc. She hopes that she can increase her income in order to set aside some money to buy more home appliances for her children.
