Samut's Group's story

Samut is aged 46 years and married with four children. Her family lives in a rural area of the Sa Ang district of Kandal province. One of her children is still in school. She and her husband have worked very hard for years to support their family by farming rice in the local area. The current business earns them about 10,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day, and they manage to save about 2,000 KHR each day after expenses.

This is the first loan for Samut’s group of three with VisionFund. She is leading her group to ask for a loan. Samut, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy materials for constructing a proper latrine for her family’s use. She hopes this loan will enable her family to have a healthy latrine for an improved life.
