A loan of $275 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Sopheap's Group's story

Sopheap lives in a rural village of the Sangke district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She is a 32-year-old mother of two children, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She has been farming rice for eight years to support her family and also supplements the family’s income by selling desserts in the local area. Her current business earns her around 32,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day, which she uses to meet her family's needs. The main challenge for her field business is low crop yields.

Sopheap has been with VisionFund for one cycle, while the other member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Sopheap successfully and smartly used her first loan, which she has paid back, to support her children’s education and improve her livelihood. Now she and her fellow group member are requesting a new loan from VisionFund. Sopheap, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland, which she hopes will result in more productive crop yields and thus enable her to make a better living and keep her children in school.
