A loan of $475 helped a member to buy one more cow for plowing her farm.

Thou's Group's story

A mother of two dependent children who are both under school age, Thou is 29 years old and also a farmer in a village of the Cheung Prey district. She has been farming on her rice field as a primary business for six years. She also raises one cow and poultry (i.e. chicken and duck). She supplements her income by making hand-made chicken cages for sale. With her current business, she can earn less than $5 USD per day.

Thou took her first loan from VisionFund in 2010, and she successfully paid back the loan with VisionFund. Now, she is able to have regular income and has some savings. Now applying for another loan with her group member who is just with VisionFund this loan cycle, Thou will use this entire loan to buy one more cow for plowing her farm. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow rice with full production capacity and earn more income so as to build on her savings to send her children to school.
