Oun's Group's story

Oun is a 57-year-old rural farmer and she is married. She lives with her husband and her children in a village located in the Tbaung Khmum district where crop farming is a common way to earn a living. Out of her four children, she still has two dependent daughters to take care of and they are still in school. She earns a living through farming rice on one hectare of farmland and planting cassava on one hectare of farmland as well. She has been in this business for almost 30 years. She has been challenged by price fluctuations for her crop yields for several years, which affected her income.

Oun's group consists of three members and she is the leader of the group. Oun has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles while her group members have been with VisionFund just for one loan cycle. Now she can earn up to KHR 12,000 from her current business to make a living. She and her two group members are applying for a loan with VisionFund of 1,400,000 Khmer Riels and 1,200,000 Khmer Riels each respectively. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and cassava seedlings for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her business and also hopes to keep her children in school until graduation.
