A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seeds for his farmland.

Aem's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in the Sangke district of Battambang province, Aem is 53 years old and married. He has five children, who have their own employment. To make a living, he has been planting garlic and chilies for almost 30 years and countering low yield from his business, which has affected his family’s income.

Aem received his first loan seven cycles ago and he completely paid back the loans. The past loans from VisionFund have helped his family significantly improve its living and afford to buy a plot of farmland. Now he can earn about 32,100 KHR per day from his current business. Now he and his member who is just with VisionFund this loan cycle are requesting a loan of 800,000 KHR and 100,000 KHR respectively. As the leader, he wants to use his portion to buy fertilizers and seeds for his farmland and use a portion of it to spend for land plowing. He hopes to increase his crop yields so as to improve his family’s living standard.
