A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pay a fee for plowing her farmland.

Sum's Group's story

Sum, 50, is married and has five children. She is a farmer in a village of the Ratanak Mondul district of Cambodia who has been growing maize as her only main income-generating business to support her living. She has been in this business for ten years, and all of her children work at the family’s plantation to help her earn a living.

Sum's group loan has been with VisionFund for seven years. She successfully paid back her previous loans with VisionFund. The loans have helped her afford sufficient food and make her living better. She now leads a group of three members in the village who are applying for another loan with VisionFund.

As the leader, she plans to use her $300 portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and to pay a plowing fee for her farmland. Sum hopes to increase her business and earn a larger income.
