A resident of a rural area in Battambang province’s Thmor Koul district, Savoen, 49, has six children in total. Four of them are staying with the family, and some of them are still in school. Savoen and her husband are farmers, who have been growing various kinds of vegetables, such as garlic, salad greens, and cucumber, for 20 years to make a living. The current business earns her about 30,000 KHR per day to meet the family needs.

Savoen has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and completely paid back the past loan. The past loan helped her to better support her children’s education. Now she is requesting another loan of 3,000,000 KHR to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticides for her cultivated land. Through this loan, she hopes to earn more income from the farming business, so as to improve her family’s lifestyle and keep her children in school.
