Sokheng's Group's story

Sokheng is a local borrower from Kompong Cham province. She is 39 years old and a mother of two children. To support her family, she has been farming cassava as the main source of income and working as a paid worker during her spare time to earn additional income. Her cassava business earns her 20,800 KHR per day.

In her group of three, she and one co-borrower are second-cycle borrowers. The remaining borrower is a fourth-time client with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). The past loan which she repaid with success has enabled her to support her cassava farming by timely paying a weeding fee and permitting her to provide decent meals for her children. Now, she is a leader of her group consisting of three. They are requesting a loan amount of 3,600,000 KHR, of which 1,200,000 KHR is her loan portion. She will spend her loan portion to pay a plowing fee and a weeding fee and to buy insecticide for her crop. She hopes that she can earn more income than before.
