A loan of $1,000 helped to expand their business and to start a new business of selling children's shoes.


Sok's story

Sok M., 49, and his wife, Ong Sophat, 47, live with their four children in the Kompong Tom Province, Cambodia. They earn a living by selling chickens in the local market. This is their second loan from Kiva, and they will use the loan to expand their business and run a new business of selling children’s shoes. Their first loan from Kiva was used for buying more chickens for sale, and that loan had helped them increase their daily income to over $10 and support their family’s food needs adequately.
