A loan of $375 helped a member to buy pesticides and fertilizer for her farmland.


Sokhat's Group's story

Sokhat is 26 years old. She is married with two dependent children who are too young for school, and lives in a rural area of the Dambae district in Kampong Cham province. To support her family, she has been farming rice on one hectare of farmland for several years, and supplements her family’s income by selling grocery items. From her current business, she can earn about 19,000 KHR per day and can save about 10,000 KHR each day for future needs.

Sokhat has been with VisionFund for four cycles, while the other group member has been with VisionFund for two cycles. Sokhat completely paid back her previous loans, which she wisely used to better support her family. Now she and her fellow group member are applying for a new loan. As the group leader, she wants to use her portion of the loan to buy pesticides and fertilizer for her farmland and to buy more grocery items for resale. With this loan, she hopes to grow her rice in a healthy and timely way so as to make a better living, and also to send her children to school.
