Sambath's Group's story

A farmer, whose name is Sambath, is 68 years old. His family’s income mainly depends on a rice plantation, which is the main source for his income. He also works as a paid worker to earn additional income. He grows rice in the Ponhea Krek district of the Tbaung Khmum province in Cambodia where his hometown is located. He has been occupied with this business for approximately 48 years and it allows him to save about $5.50 USD each day after daily expenses. He is leading a group which has three members in order to apply for a new loan from VisionFund. As the leader, Sambath will spend his first loan to buy fertilizer to increase his crops' productivity. In the future, he hopes to earn additional income and have a good standard of living.
