Sokly's Group's story

Sokly is 24 years old and married with one son who is too young for school. She lives in a rural village located in the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Cambodia. For the last six years, Sokly has been farming rice on four-hectare plot of farmland to provide the primary source of her family’s income. Sometimes, her husband works for others for a fee. Sokly and her husband can earn about 18,000 KHR daily and they manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after expenses. Her major business challenge is the lack of water. She has received two previous loans with VisionFund and her fellow group member has received four previous loans. Sokly has successfully repaid her loans.

Sokly is the leader of a group loan request. She will use her portion of the loan to rent a harvesting machine to help with her rice paddy harvest. Sokly hopes to get a high yield from her farmland to improve her living standards and send her son to school.
