A loan of $175 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.

Oun's Group's story

Oun, aged 37, is the breadwinner of the family and has three dependent children to support as they are still in school. She is one of the residents living in a small village of Thmor Koul district, Battambang province, in which rice farming is one of the common businesses. She has been farming for 12 years to support her family and also working for others for pay as additional income.

Oun joined VisionFund in 2008 as a first loan cycle client. Then, she took other loans consecutively when each loan was repaid. The loans have made her living condition better and enabled her to send her children to school. She can earn about US$6 per day. Now, she is applying for a new loan with another member and she leads the group. She will use her entire requested loan amount of 400,000 KHR to buy seeds and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes that she will earn more income from her crop yield and gradually expand this business.
