Sida's Group's story

Sida is a local resident from the Sandan district of Kampong Thom province. She is 35 years old and has three children, one of whom is in school, while the other two are yet too young to attend.

Sida has been a rice farmer for approximately eight years, earning about 4.50 USD per day. She is able to save up to 2.50 USD each day for future needs. Drought is the main challenge for her rice crop.

Sida is the leader of this group of six requesting a loan from VisionFund. She will use her loan portion to buy a water filter in order to provide fresh water for her family to drink. Sida believes that this filter will improve her standard of living and protect her entire family from illness.

In this group: Sida, Bopha, Samay, Yoeurn, Sat, Thon
