A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay for a water pump for her rice paddy.

Proem's Group's story

Proem is 28 years old, married, and lives in a rural area of the Tbaung Khmum district. She has two dependent children who are still in school. She has been farming rice as her main income source to support her living for more than four years. Sometimes, Proem and her husband work for others to raise extra income to better support their family.

Now she leads a group of four female members in the village. Her group has been with VisionFund since 2010. She currently earns US $6 per day and is able to afford sufficient food for her family. She is requesting another loan with the other three members. She will use the loan to buy fertilizer and pay for a water pump to carry water to her rice paddy. This loan will enable her to grow her rice healthfully, and she hopes it will increase her crop yields.

In this group: Proem, Oun, Chan, Polen
