A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a plot of farmland.


Sophal's story

Living in a rural village of the Kampong Cham province’s Chhoeng Prey district, Sophal is aged 45 years and married with two children. For the last 20 years, she has been farming rice and working as a paid worker. Together, she and her husband can earn about US $13 per day and can save about US $10 each day for their future needs.

This is the first loan for Sophal with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. Now she is applying for a loan to buy a plot of farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her current business so as to make a living better.
