Mao's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in the Sangke district of Cambodia, Mao is 46 years old and married. She has four children, one of whom is still in school and dependent on her. To make a living and take care of her children, she sells rice soup in the village while her husband drives a motor-taxi to better support the family. She has been in the business for 10 years.

Mao has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles and has completely repaid the loans. She successfully used the loans from VisionFund to better support her family’s living. She is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,400,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy spices for making rice soup and use a portion of it to spend on building a proper store for selling rice soup. She hopes to earn a large income from the current business so as to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
