A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice and cassava business.

Sokha's Group's story

Sokha, a resident of the Ponhea Krek District of Kampong Cham Province, is a 41-year-old married mother of two children, one of whom is still dependent and in school. She and her husband have struggled to feed their family. They have been farming rice on 1.5 hectares of farmland, growing cassava on 1 hectare of farmland and raising pigs for thirteen years. Sometimes, they supplement their income by working for others for a fee. The current business earns her family about 46,000 KHR per day and they manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

This is the first microloan for Sokha’s group with VisionFund. She is leading her group to request a loan of 500,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her rice and cassava business. Sokha hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income to improve her family’s standard of living and keep her child in school.
