Case Study from World Vision Initiative - MASE Project

World Vision Initiative (WVI)

Ms. Nim ros and her family (consisting of her father, her disabled older brother, her younger sister and her daughter) lives in Srae Veoung Villige, Prey Klar Commune, Koh Andet District, Takeo Province, Cambodia. She was earning approximately USD 150 per year from making sticky rice cake and USD 125 per year from planting vegetables. This was insufficient to support her basic needs and her daughter’s education. She is also faced with discrimination from being a widow in her community.


After participating in the MASE project, she was able to increase her income with labour support from her brother and sister and technical support from the MASE2 project. She could earn approximately USD 100 per month from vegetables after harvest and USD 125 max per month from making sticky rice cake. Her family is now living in better condition and she could also afford a good education for her daughter in grade 8. Movever, she received recognition from her villagers for her leadership and commitment to lead her family to generate more income while supporting her family members.
