A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Sambun's Group's story

Sambun is 48 years old, married, and lives with her husband and four children in a village of the Mongkol Borey District, Cambodia. She has three daughters and one son. To earn a living in the village, she and her husband have been farming rice for several years. She also raises pigs to earn extra income. Sometimes she is employed by others.

Sambun has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles, and she successfully paid back the loans with VisionFund. The loans have helped her improve her standard of living. Now she can earn up to US$4.5 per day and manages to save around US$2 each day. Sambun and her group member, Khum, who has been with VisionFund for six loan cycles, are applying for a loan of 1,000,000 Khmer riels each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy ten sacks of fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow rice healthfully and increase crop yields so she may earn more income to make her life better.
