Sophal's Group's story

Sophal is age 25 and a married mother of four children, living in a rural village of the Sampov district, Pursat province. All of her children are still in school. Rice farming, cassava planting and pig raising are the main sources of the family’s income, and her husband supplements family income by working as a laborer. They have been in these businesses for two years. Sophal and her husband earn about KHR 27,000 per day, and they manage to save about KHR 10,000 each day, after daily living expenses.

Sophal’s group consists of three members. Sophal has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and successfully paid back the past loan. The past loan helped her to support her current farming business. Now she is leading her group to request another loan. Sophal, who is the leader, will use her portion of the loan to buy more piglets and feed for her pig business. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn a good living.
