A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and a plowshare for land preparation for her farmland.

Sokun's story

Sokun is aged 52 years old and married. She has five children and lives with her family in the rural village of the Ponhea Krek district, Cambodia. Four children are still dependent on her. Rice farming is one of the main sources of her family's income and she has been in this business for 21 years. She also plants cassava and rubber trees to gain extra income and sometimes she works for others, plowing land for pay.

This is Sokun's second loan from VisionFund. The first loan has enabled her to support and feed her family sufficiently. With her current business, she manages to earn a daily income of around 82,000 KHR. After having completely paid back the loan, she is now requesting another loan from VisionFund. She will use this loan to buy fertilizer and a plowshare to prepare her land for farming. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income and improve her lifestyle.
