A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy more grocery items for her store.

Hoeun's Group's story

Hoeun is 51 years old and married. She has eight children--three daughters and five sons, two of whom are dependents working for pay in Thailand. Her main income is from her grocery business, where she sells detergent, soap, eggs, biscuits, seasonings, shampoo, etc. She has been in this business for more than 20 years, while her husband is motor taxi driver to help earn income to support their big family.

Hoeun received a loan from VisionFund six years ago and successfully paid back the loan with VisionFund. Since 2005, the loan has helped her afford sufficient food and make a better living. With her current business, she earns US $15 per day, but she can only save US $2 each day. Hoeun and the other five members in the group, who have also been with VisionFund from two to six years, are applying for another loan from VisionFund. As the leader, she plans to use this loan to buy more grocery items for her store. She hopes to increase her business so as to earn a larger income to set aside some money for the future.
