A loan of $900 helped a member to buy pesticides for her cassava.


Sopheap's Group's story

Sopheap is 33 years old and married. She lives with her husband and two children in a rural area of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. All of her children are still in school.

Sopheap and her husband are farmers who grow cassava on one hectare of farmland and sell grocery items in a village. Having been in this business for six years, together they can earn about KHR 52,000 per day.

Sopheap has been with VisionFund Cambodia for two cycles while the other member has been with VisionFund Cambodia for four cycles. Sopheap fully repaid the loans and she has successfully used the loans to better support her children's education. Now she is leading her group to take another loan.

As the leader, Sopheap is going to use some of her portion to buy pesticides for her cassava and some of it to spend on labor to plow the field. She hopes to grow her business and make more crops, to make a better living.
