A loan of $300 helped a member to plow his farmland and to buy rice seed and potash.

Sokha's Group's story

A married father of six children, two of whom are in school, Sokha is 53 years old and a villager from Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. To deal with the daily cost of living, Sokha does rice cultivation on a 5-hectare area, bean growing on a 2-hectare area, and catches fish for resale to earn extra income. He has managed this job for ages.

Sokha, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past two cycles, has fully repaid his loan with success to support his business, and improved his living conditions better than before. Moreover, he is able to set aside some money for future needs, too. For this loan cycle, he joins with another member, who has never been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before. As the leader, he will spend his loan portion to plow his farmland and to buy rice seed and potash. He highly believes that he can expand his business on a bigger scale and make triple income for the sake of his kids.
