Pok's Group's story

Pok is 42 years old, married, and has two children, one of whom attends school. She and her family live in a rural area of the Sa Ang district located in the Kandal province, Cambodia. Pok and her husband make their living farming rice on a hectare farmland, earning about 70,000 KHR a day. They save approximately 15,000 KHR for future needs after offsetting the daily cost of living.

Pok is leading a loan group which consists of three female members who all are first-time borrowers with VisionFund. They are requesting loans for 160,000 KHR each. The group leader Pok will use her loan portion to build a latrine for use by the family. Wit the loan, Pok will be able to avoid using unsanitary practices and create a healthier environment for her whole family. With this latrine properly installed, she can also help to promote sanitation and hygiene practices in her community.
