A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizer for dry season rice on two-hectares of farmland.

Kan's Group's story

Living in a small village in the Thmor Koul district, Kan is a 50-year-old mother of seven children. She has to be responsible for five children, two of whom are still in school. For the sake of this big family, she has been farming for 10 years.

Kan took the first loan from VisionFund in 2009 and successfully paid back the entire loan, which has made her a better living, as she can grow her paddy timely and produce more crop yield. She now can earn about US$10 per day.

She leads a new group with two other members. They are requesting a new loan of KHR 1,000,000 each. As the group leader, she will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for dry season rice farming on two-hectares of farmland. She hopes to earn more income and keep her children in school until tertiary level.

In this group: Kan, Nimol, Lort
