A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland.

Thea's Group's story

A breadwinner of the family residing in a village of the Moung Russey district where crop farming is a common business activity, Thea is 42 years old and has four children: one daughter and three sons. All of her children are still in school. Like other villagers, Thea is also a rice farmer who has been farming her own farmland as a primary business for 15 years while her husband is a house builder in the area.

Thea has joined with VisionFund since 2008. The previous loans have helped her grow her rice timely and successfully and send her children to school regularly. With her current income of nine U.S. dollars per day, she is able to save three U.S. dollars daily for future needs. Successfully repaying her last loan with VisionFund, she leads a group consisting of three female members in applying for another loan with VisionFund for US$350 each. As the leader, she will use this loan to buy fertilizer and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to increase her crop yield and improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
