Sophat's Group's story

Sophat is 40 years old and lives in a rural village in the Ratanak Mondul district of Cambodia. She has six children, of whom two daughters and one son are still dependent on her. She has planted rice and raised pigs for ten years and supplements her income by selling groceries. She can earn around KHR 12,000 per day from her current businesses. Sophat has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles and successfully paid back the past loans, while the other members of her group have been with VisionFund for two cycles. The past loans have helped Sophat earn a better living. She is leading her group of three female members to apply for a loan from VisionFund of KHR 1,400,000 each. As the leader, Sophat is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland, as well as to buy pig feed and grocery items for her store. With this loan, she hopes to expand her current business and to increase her income to improve her living standards.
