A loan of $750 helped a member to buy bamboo to produce more flat baskets and to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her crop.


Sophy's Group's story

Sophy is 36 years old and has two children who are in school. Her primary sources of income are from handmade flat baskets made from bamboo, and rice farming. The business that she has had for 16 years has returned her about 40,000 KHR (Cambodian Riels) per day.

Including this loan, she is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She has fully repaid her past loan wisely to stablize her living condition and keep her kids in school.

For this new cycle, she leads a group of four to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her loan portion to buy bamboo to produce more flat baskets and to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her crop. She hopes to gain a good income from her business, better than before.
