A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her one-hectare farmland for the dry season rice.

Savy's Group's story

As a 34-year-old farmer in a village of the Thmor Koul district of Cambodia where crop farming is a common way to make a living, Savy has two dependent children (one son and one daughter) and they both are still in school and help with family’s business. In addition to her rice farming, she also sells food and dessert in the village to earn more income. She has been in this business for five years.

Now Savy is taking her third loan with VisionFund since 2008 while the other member in the group has just joined with VisionFund this loan cycle. The loan has helped her have a regular business. With her current business, she can earn more than US $30 per day but is able to save around US$7 each day. As the leader, she will use this loan to buy fertilizer for her one-hectare farmland for dry season rice. She hopes to increase her crop yield, improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
