Savat's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy fertilizer for the rice fields.
Savat's Group's story
Savat, 61, is widowed and has nine children, five of whom are married and two children are still in school. To earn a living, she has been farming on her rice field for 20 years. Savat leads a group of three female members in a rural area of Moung Russey district where the typical business is rice farming. She has been with VisionFund for four years and she completely repaid her loans with VisionFund. The loans from VisonFund help her to have enough capital for her rice plantation, family expenses, and children's study. She is now applying for a fifth loan from VisionFund to buy fertilizer for her rice field. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her crop yield and also hopes to earn more income to set aside some savings to keep her children in school.
