A loan helped to buy more organic pesticide and fertilizer inputs for her rice farmland to grow well.


Siek's Group's story

Siek is a farmer living in Kampot province. She is a 38-year-old married woman. She is a mother blessed with two schoolchildren. She is growing rice as the single main source of her income to support her family’s living, which has helped her to save up about $6 US dollars per day for future needs.

The main challenge that her rice farm faces is destruction by insects and lack of water to support it. Siek has been with VisionFund Cambodia for three loan cycles, including this one, with a successful repayment of her past loans that enabled her lifestyle to be better than before.

Now, she leads a group consisting of two members, and she is the leader. Siek will spend her portion of the loan to buy more organic pesticide and fertilizer inputs for her rice farmland to grow well. She hopes that this loan can help her rice crop to be healthier than last year, and can earn her a good income to support her children’s education.
