Saren'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 her farming.
Saren's Group's story
As a 59-year-old mother of six children, Saren lives in the Battambang province. Growing rice has been the main source of her family’s income for 32 years and it earns her about 62,200 KHR per day. She is able to save about 24,000 KHR each day. Saren has been with VisionFund for eight cycles already and completely paid back the loans. Those previous loans helped her to have enough household supplies for her family. The low quality of crop yields and a lack of working capital are the main challenges that she has faced. Due to these cases, she is now leading a group to apply for a new loan via VisionFund. As a group leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer for her farming. She hopes this loan will help her to earn more income to improve her family’s living.
