Sophea's Group's story

Sophea, a diligent farmer in a village located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang Province, is a young 27-year-old mother of two children; one is in school and one is too young to attend school. Her main sources of income are from bean growing on one and half hectares of farmland and grocery selling in the front yard of her house. The business that she has been with for 7 years has returned about 31,000 KHR per day. This cycle is the second-cycle loan for Sophea. The first loan that she has fully paid back with success has helped her to improve her living condition gradually. Now, she has formed a group of three to apply for a new loan. She is seeking 1,200,000 KHR, while the other two group members are the first-time borrowers seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Sophea is going to use her portion to buy more items to replenish her grocery selling business, including soap, instant noodle, canned food, and other food items. With the rest of her loan, she is going to buy seed and to pay the plowing fee for her bean farm. She hopes that this purchase will support the needs of her business in a timely manner and increase her income so that she can keep her children in school.
