A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her pineapple planting and to pay fees associated with her rice reaping.


Soknoeun's Group's story

Soknoeun is a 29-year-old resident of the Moung Russey district in Battambang province. She is also a young mother of four dependent children who are too young for schooling. To feed the family, she grows rice and pineapples as her main source of income; she also works as a paid worker for supplemental income. She has been doing this for around ten years and it has earned her about 40,000 KHR per day. Soknoeun has been with Kiva partner VisionFund for two loan cycles. Her past two loans, which she has successfully repaid, have helped her to improve her living conditions at a good pace. Now, she is leading a group of two to get a new loan from VisionFund. She is seeking 1,000,000 KHR, while her co-borrower is applying for 600,000 KHR. As the leader, Soknoeun will use her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer for her pineapple planting and to pay fees associated with her rice reaping. She hopes to gain a good income for her family.
