A loan of $600 helped a member to pay for harvesting and buy feed for her poultry.

Sokkhoeun's Group's story

Sokkhoeun is a 39-year-old widowed mother with three children who are still in school. She is a farmer who has been farming for ten years. For the past three years she has supplemented her income by working at an ice factory. In addition, she raises poultry including chickens and ducks. She is currently able to earn about three U.S. dollars a day to feed her children.

Sokkhoeun leads a group made up of three females. She and one of her group have been with VisionFund since 2010 while the third member has just joined VisionFund. Her first loan from VisionFund helped her to have regular income, to purchase some basic household necessities and send her children to school.

She is requesting a loan partly to pay for harvesting and partly to purchase feed for her chicken and ducks. The loan will allow her to finish harvesting her rice and also feed her chicken and ducks enough so that they will become fat. This will enable her to make a better living and keep her children in school.
