Sokkong's story

Sokkong is a young mother of two little kids residing in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. To earn a living, she does rice farming on a one-hectare area and raises two pigs, whereas working for others for a fee provides supplementary income from her husband. Sokkong is a first-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She will spend the loan amount she is requesting to buy eight pigs for raising and to build a decent pigpen. She will spend a portion of it on purchasing fertilizer for her rice paddy. She hopes to gain a good income to support her children.
