A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer, and to pay plowing and transplanting fees for her farmland.


Sophy's Group's story

Age 40 and a villager from Kampong Cham province, Sophy is a married mother of three dependent children. Her family's core income comes from two hectares of rice farming, and also from working for others for a fee. This business earns her about 23,600 KHR per day. This is the second microloan for Sophy with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The first loan enabled Sophy to lease an additional plot of farmland to expand her agribusiness. She repaid that loan on time with success. Now, she and her co-borrower are seeking for 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and to pay plowing and transplanting fees for her farmland. She hopes to gain a good yield from her business so that she can make more income to sustain her living and her keep her kids in school.
