Sorn's Group's story

Sorn, 56, is married. Her family lives in a house with a thatched roof located in Battambang province’s Ek Phom district. The main sources of her family’s income are from making snacks for selling while her husband is a paid worker. She has been running her business for 15 years, earning about KHR 40,000 per day and she is able to save about KHR 20,000 each day.
Sorn received her first loan with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund, four cycles ago and has effectively used it to sustain her family’s business, and support her family’s needs. Now she is leading her group to seek another loan. Sorn, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy ingredients for making snacks. She hopes to earn more income to make a better living.
