Rice farming and fishing have been the main sources for her family’s income for five years. Soern’s husband also complements the income by selling fish. She earns about 15,000 KHR per day from her current business and manages to save about 8,000 KHR each day for future needs.
Soern has been with VisionFund for two cycles while the other member is with VisionFund only this cycle. Soern completely repaid her previous loans which enabled her to provide her family with enough food. She is now leading her group to ask for a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fishing materials. She hopes to catch a lot of fish to sell it for a good price.
