Sokchea's Group's story

Sokchea is a villager of the Mongkul Borey district of Banteay Mean Chey Province, Cambodia. As the 37-year-old mother of four children who need her care as they are still in school, she has been engaged in rice cropping as the primary source of income. Additionally, she also uses her spare time to add more income through working for others for a fee and selling coconuts. From the current business, which she has been in for 5 years, she can earn about 25,000 KHR. Sokchea's group consists of two female members; she is an eight-loan-cycle client and her member is a third-loan-cycle client. The previous loans have improved her business progressively and enabled her to buy a motorbike to assist her coconut selling business. Now, she and her group member are seeking a new loan. She will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer for her rice field and the remaining amount to pay for a harvesting fee. She hopes to gain more income so as to make more income.
