A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her family.


Sophat's Group's story

Residing in Kampong Cham province, Sophat is 43 years old and a widow. She has two children, one of whom is in school. To struggle for a living, she manages rice farming on 1 hectare of rice farm, a business that she has been involved in for ages. This is the first microloan for Sophat with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). She is now forming a group of two to get a new loan. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her family. She hopes that she can gain a good yield from her crop so she can earn more money to expand her business.
