A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Sombon's Group's story

Aged 55 years, Sombon lives in a rural village, located in the Battambang province’s Bovel district, Cambodia. She is a married mother of four children.

For the last 35 years, Sombon has been farming rice to make a living and she also works for others for a fee. Together, she and her husband can earn about KHR 60,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR 40,000 each day for future needs.

This is the first loan for Sombon with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund Cambodia. Now, she is leading her group to ask for a loan.

Sombon will use part of her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland and she will use a portion of it to spend on labor fees. This loan will enable her to extend her farmland and she hopes to grow more rice to make a better living.
