A loan of $725 helped a member to buy more grocery items for resale.


Sophy's Group's story

Sophy, a parent of two schoolchildren residing in Battambang province, is in her early 30s and is a farmer in the local area. The main icome source of her family is from rice growing and grocery items selling. She has been involved in her current business for 10 years, earning about 28,000 KHR per day.

Sophy, who has been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) for the past five cycles, has fully repaid her past loans which have improved her living conditions in a gradual manner. Now, she has formed a group of two to apply for a new loan. She will spend her loan portion to buy more grocery items for resale. Additionally, she will use some of her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing. She hopes that she can gain a high yield and attract more clients for her grocery-selling business.
