Soeurn's story

Originally from the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, Soeurn is 61 years old. She is married with four children, three (two daughters and one son) of whom are still dependent on her for support and are helping the family’s businesses. Soeurn grows paddy rice as the main source of income and supplements her income via planting cassava, raising pigs, and working for others for a fee. She has been with these businesses for 20 years and is able to earn approximately KHR 62,700 per day.

As the latex from rubber trees always gets a high price, Soeurn plan to grow rubber trees to earn extra income. Therefore, she is applying for the first cycle loan with VisionFund in amount of KHR 4,000,000. She hopes to grow her rubber tree healthfully so that she can earn more income.
