A loan of $825 helped a member to buy fertilizers and seeds for her plantation business.

Pek's Group's story

Living in a rural village of Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district, Pek is a 55-year-old married mother of four children, two of whom are dependent on her and work at a garment factory to help the family generate income. She has earned a living through farming rice and planting oranges for thirteen years. To better support the family, her husband also raises cows and works as a paid worker in the local area. The current business earns her family about 60,000KHR per day, but Pek can manage to save about 30,000KHR each day for their future needs after deducting daily expenses.

Pek has been with VisionFund for four cycles and completely paid back the past loans, which constantly supported her family with enough food and basic necessities. Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and seeds for her plantation business and use a portion of it to spend on plowing the field. With this loan, Pek hopes to increase her current business and also hopes to make more income to improve her family’s living standards.
