Somaly's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a sharpening machine for making more cabinets to sell.

Somaly's story

Somaly is 47 years old and has five children, two of whom are students. Currently, she lives in a rural area of Kratie province. She grows cassava while her husband is a cabinet maker. Together, she and her husband can generate income about 10 USD per day and it allows her to save about 3 USD each day after daily expenses.

She has applied for three loans already with VisionFund and has fully paid them back. The loans from VisionFund have helped to sustain her business and improve her living conditions with enough food and clothing for her family. Now, Somaly is seeking a fourth loan to purchase a sharpening machine to make cabinets to sell.

In the future, she hopes to improve her business and earn more income to continue support her children’s education.
