Chouk's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of Battambang province’s Sangke district, Chouk is a 64-year-old mother of five children, some of whom are still in school while the others help with their family’s business. She and her husband are farmers who grow rice and sesame in the village to make a living. Together, they can earn about 60,000 KHR per day and can manage to save about 30,000 KHR each day. Chouk’s group consists of two female members and she has been with VisionFund for three cycles. She completely paid back the loans with VisionFund. The past loans have helped her better support her family. Now she and her group member are applying for a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield so as improve their living standard and keep her children in school.
