A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Sok's Group's story

A resident from a rural village of the Sangke district of Battambang, Cambodia, Sok is a 37-year-old married woman with eight children, seven of whom are living with her and work at the family’s business. She earns a living through rice farming and growing vegetables such as soybeans and cabbages, which she has been doing for 20 years. With her current business, she can earn about KHR 60,800 per day.

The main challenge for her is low crop yields resulting from flood. Sok is leading this group of two members who have been with VisionFund for three cycles. She has successfully managed to pay back the past loans that have helped her gradually improve her family’s livelihood. She and the other member are applying for KHR 1,000,000 each. Sok will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income so as to improve her standard of living.
