A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Sokun's Group's story

Living in a thatched roof house in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Cambodia, Sokun is aged 30 years and married. She has two children; one of whom is dependent on her. She and her husband are rice farmers, who have been in farming to make a living for several years in order to better support their family. Her husband sometimes works as a paid construction worker in the local area. From the current business, she is able to earn about KHR 24,000 per day to meet the family’s needs. Low crop yield has been the main challenge for her rice farming business.

Sokun’s group consists of three members who are all females. This is the third micro-loan for Sokun with VisionFund. The past loans have helped her relieve the family's financial burden and better support her family. Now, she and her group members are requesting a loan with VisionFund of KHR 800,000 each. As the leader, she is will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as to make a better living.
