A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers for farmland, cucumber seeds, and to build a cucumber trellis.

Chork's story

Chork is aged 43 and a widowed mother. She lives in a rural village of Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She has three children, two daughters and one son, one of whom is still dependent on her and in school. To support her family as a single mother, she has been struggling to generate income growing paddy rice and planting cucumbers. She has been in this business for twenty-five years.

Chork has been with VisionFund for one cycle. After the first loan that she has repaid completely, she feels confident that she can improve her living conditions gradually. Now she is requesting a second loan of USD 1,000 to buy fertilizers for her rice field. Moreover, she is going to use a portion of it to buy cucumber seed and to build a trellis. She expects to earn more income, so she can keep her child in school.
