Chanthok's Group's story

Chanthok is a resident in a rural village in the KrorKor district, Cambodia. She has four daughters, all of whom are in school; sometimes they help their mum's business.

To support her children in school, she runs a small stall selling grocery items in the village, and raises pigs at home. Her husband supplements the family's income by fishing, and reselling the fish.

She has been in this business for 12 years. Chanthok's group consists of two female members, both of whom have been with VisionFund at least three loan cycles. Chanthok has used her past loan with success to inject more capital into running her business; she has already paid back the past loan.

In this cycle, she is seeking for 1,4000,000 KHR while her co-member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. As the group leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fishing equipment (cast net, fish trap). She will also use a portion to buy more grocery items for resale, including soap, canned food, instant noodles, etc.

She expects that this purchase will help her support her business, so she can provide her children decent food and keep them in school.
