A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizers for farmland and pay for education expenses.

Sophat's Group's story

Living in a rural village located in the Kandal Stoeng district, Sophat is 38 years old and divorced. She has one dependent daughter who is still in school. To make a living, she has been cultivating rice for about 18 years and selling palm cake for 10 years. The current business earns her about 6 USD per day. She can save about 2 USD each day for future needs.

This is a group loan for Sophat's group of four members who live in the same area. Sophat has been a member of VisionFund for one cycle already, while the others are clients in their first and second cycles with VisionFund. The first loan helped her increase her income and better support her daughter's education. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and to support her daughter's education by paying for things such as schooling materials. She hopes to increase her business and earn more income so as to improve her standard of living.
