Socheat’s Group’s story
Socheat is 33 years old and has four dependent children, two of whom are too young and the other two who are in school. She is originally from Sangke district in Battambang province. She tries to earn income by raising pigs and cows, which has been an important source of her income for around 10 years. Her husband catches fish to sell to complement her income.
Socheat is a client participating in her second loan cycle with VisionFund and she completely paid back the first loan on time. As the leader of a two-member group, Socheat will use her loan portion to buy pig feed in order to support her pig-raising business. In the future, she hopes to expand her business so that she can earn additional income to improve her living conditions.
