A rural villager of the Thmor Koul district of Cambodia, Pich 38 is widowed and has two children who are still in school. To make a living, she has been farming rice on her two-hectare farmland for seven years and in order to earn more income, she grows herbs (a plant used with soup) for sale.

A leader of the four-member group, Pich is the fifth cycled client with VisionFund while the others have been with VisionFund from two to six years. Since 2006, the loans has helped her to earn better income, afford nutrient food, and buy basic household items. With her current business, she earns around US$4 per day and is able to save around US$3 each day. Now she is leading her group to apply for another loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she wants to buy fertilizer for her farmland for dry season rice. She hopes to increase her crop yield so as to earn a larger income to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
