A loan of $275 helped a member to buy sugar for sale.


Em's Group's story

Em, 37, is a married mother of three dependent children: one daughter and two sons, who are still in school. She is a farmer who has been farming her own land for 10 years. To better support her family, she and her husband buy and sell sugar and clams.

Em has been with VisionFund for two years while her group member just joined VisionFund this loan cycle. Since business has been good, Em has successfully repaid her loan and now earns more than US $10 per day. She is now leading her 2-member group in applying for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, Em will use her entire portion of the loan to buy palm sugar for sale. This loan will enable her to keep her business running. Em hopes to increase the family's income to make a better living.
