Pak's Group's story

Pak is 58 years old and widowed. She lives with her family in a rural area located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She has ten children, two of whom are dependents and still in school. Rice farming is the only source of her family’s income and Pak has been a farmer for sixteen years. Currently, she earns approximately 23,000 KHR each day and is able to save about 10,000 KHR each day for her future needs. Pak is the leader of a three-member loan group which has been with VisionFund for two cycles. She will use her portion of the loan to buy rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to increase her current business to earn a larger income which will help her to make a better living and keep her children in school.
