A loan of $500 helped to buy a cow for her farm.


Soknay's story

A mother living in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Soknay is 32 years old and the mother of two children, both of whom are dependents and still in school. For the past eight years, Soknay has been selling fish to support her family, while her husband works as a policeman in local area.
Soknay has been a member of VisionFund for two loan cycles, and she has completely repaid her loans. She has used the loans from VisionFund to provide better support for her family, providing enough food and meeting their basic necessities. She can earn about US$10 per day from her current business and save about US$5 each day for future needs. Now Soknay is requesting a new loan of US$500. She wants to use this loan to buy a cow for her farm, and she will also use a portion of it to buy fish for resale. Soknay hopes this loan will enable her to have a cow as a farm animal to help in her farming business, so as to improve her standard of living.
