As the breadwinner of the family residing in the Dambae district of Battambang Province, Mon has to be responsible for two children who are still in school. To feed her family, she has been working for 7 years on one hectare of farmland each for growing rice and cassava. From these current businesses, she can earn up to 5 US Dollars per day. For her, the main challenges are children's illness and the insufficiency of working capital for her farmland.

Mon has just joined VisionFund this cycle as a first-cycle client. She is applying for a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy fertilizer and hire laborers for plowing her land for both cash-crops. She hopes she still can keep both of her children in school.
