A loan of $500 helped a member to buy additional grocery items and wedding decoration materials.

Sokha's Group's story

Originally from a rural area located in Moung Russey district of Battambang Province, Sokha is married and a 28-year-old mother of two dependent children still too young for school. Her major source of income is the rice she grows on a hectare of farmland. She also sells groceries and is a wedding facilitator, supplying makeup for the bride and decorations for the ceremony. She has been earning money through these businesses for five years and earns about 40,000 KHR a month.

Sokha has taken out loans through VisionFund three times and completely repaid them. Profits that resulted from the past loans have resulted in a better life for her family. Now she has formed a two-women group seeking a new loan of 2,000,000 KHR. Of that, she will take 1,400,000 KHR while the other member will take 600,000 KHR.

Sokha plans to use her loan portion to buy additional grocery items such as instant noodles, canned food, shampoo, etc. to sell. She will also use part of it to buy decoration materials for her wedding facilitator business. She hopes to increase her income so she can set aside money for future needs.
