Heang's Group's story

Residing in a rural village of the Kror kor district of the Pursat province, Cambodia, Heang is 32 years old and married. She has two children (one daughter and one son) to take care of. To make a living, she has been in rice farming for ten years while her husband is a palm sugar maker and sometimes works as a paid worker. Together, they can earn about KHR 15,000 per day and manage to save about KHR 10,000 each day. Heang’s group consists of two members. She received her first loan with VisionFund one cycle ago and completely paid back her past loan. Heang successfully used the loan to better support her family's living. Now she is leading her group to request a new loan of KHR 300,000 each. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy a firewood-cutting machine to support the palm sugar producing business. With this loan, she hopes to earn more income so as to live with a better lifestyle.
