A loan of $650 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizer for her rice farming and plantation.

Neam's Group's story

Neam, aged 35, is a mother of three children. She lives with her husband and her three children in the rural village of the Tbaaung Khmum district. She and her husband are rice farmers while her three children (two daughters and one son) are still students.

To overcome her family's hardship to support her family, Neam and her husband have been farming rice on her own farmland for about 8 years. Having been with VisionFund for two cycles, Neam has managed to improve her living condition and buy additional plot of farmland. With her current business, she can earn up to US$3 per day and she is able to save about US$1 each day for the future needs.

Assuredly with the satisfactory result of the previous loans, Neam leads a group of two members including herself to apply for another loan with VisionFund. She is requesting a loan of 1,400,000 Khmer Riels and the other member is requesting 1,200,000 KHR loan. As the group leader, Neam will use her loan to buy seeds and fertilizer for her rice farming. She hopes to increase her crop yields so she can keep her children in school.
