Sinoern, 27, lives in a rural village of Kampong Cham province’s Ou Reang Ov district, Cambodia. She is married and has one son to take care of who is still too young for school. For the last two years, Sinoern has been working as a rice farmer, while her husband is a paid construction worker. Her current business earns her family approximately US$10 per day and she manages to save about US$4 each day after offsetting daily expenses. Sinoern has just joined with VisionFund this cycle. She is seeking a loan of US$1,000. With this loan, she is going to buy a plot of farmland to expand her rice-paddy business. She hopes to get a high yield from her paddy business to make a better living.
