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

Sokhea's Group's story

Living in a village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia, Sokhea is a 24-year-old married mother of one son.

She makes a living through farming rice on three and a half hectares of farmland. Having been in this business for six years, she is able to earn approximately 15,000 KHR per day, and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy field.

Sokhea’s group consists of two members who live in the same village; she is a second-time borrower and her co-member is a first-time borrower. She completely paid back the prior loan, which has helped her relieve the family’s burden and improve her livelihood.

Now Sokhea and her group member are applying for a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for her farmland. She hopes her crop yield will become more profitable so as to improve her standard of living.
