Sokheang's Group's story

Originally from Battambang province, Sokheang is 50 years old. She is a married mother who is blessed with three children, only one of her children is in school. Cassava planting is the main important source of her family income while her husband is electrician to earn extra income to support their daily living. She has been engaged with cassava planting for around 10 years. Through these businesses, she can manage to save 28,000 KHR each day for emergency needs. Due to having not enough working capital to support her cassava, she can only harvest very low crop yields.

To complement this, she decided to lead a group of two members to request a new loan with VisionFund and this is the fourth loan cycle for her. She already repaid all the past loans and she has used it to buy household appliances to use. With this new loan, Sokheang will manage it to renovate her old house in order to provide a suitable shelter for her entire family to live in.
