Som's Group's story

Som is 38 years old and a married father of five children. Two are in school and three are too young for schooling.

The main income source for his family is from cassava farming, which he has been involved in for 20 years. He can earn 36,100 KHR per day.

He is a second-time borrower with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner). As the group leader, he will spend his entire loan portion to pay for pesticide, fertilizer and plowing fee. He hopes to collect a good yield and to sell it for a good price to improve his family's living situation.
