A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy seed and fertilizer for her farmland.

Somaly's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of the Kampong Cham Province’s Dambae District, Somaly is 42 years old and married with three children, all of whom are dependent and still in school. She earns a living through farming rice to feed and support her family members. Her husband buys and sells coconuts in the village and he is also a taxi driver to better feed the family. Having been in this business for twenty years, she is able to earn about 42,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 20,000 KHR each day for the future needs.

Somaly has been with VisionFund for two cycles and has completely paid back the past three loans. She smartly used the loans to improve her living gradually. Now leading her group to ask for a loan, Somaly, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy seed and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to produce more rice she can earn more income to improve her standard of living.
