Sokem's story

Sokem, 33, is a widow who lives with her child in a rural village of the Sa Ang district of Kandal province, Cambodia. She earns a living by embroidering cloth and laundering clothes. Sokem has been in this business for five years, earning about US $27 per day and she is able to save about US $9 each day after expenses. The main challenge for her business is to transport her embroidered products to customers in Phnom Penh city, which is far away from her village.

Sokhem has been a member of VisionFund for two loan cycles already and she completely repaid her previous loans, which have helped her relieve her family’s financial burdens and support her business. To better support her business and respond to customers’ needs, Sokem is requesting another loan of US $1,100 to buy an embroidering machine and a laundering machine for her business. With this loan, she hopes to increase her business by responding to her customers’ needs on time and she also hopes to earn a larger income to make her living situation better.
