Sophal's Group's story

A citizen from a rural village of Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Sophal is age 56 years and married. She has six children to take care of, one (daughter) of whom is dependent and still in school. To feed her family, she has worked hard as a rice farmer on a ten-hectare area of farmland for ten years. The current business earns her about 30,000KHR per day and she manages to save about 20,000KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Sophal’s group consists of five members who are all females, and she is in her first loan with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, Sophal is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland, and will use a portion of it to spend for gasoline and labor. She hopes to make healthy rice to increase her family’s income so as to make a better living.
