A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seedlings for her farmland.


Sina's Group's story

Aged 48, Sina is a married mother of three children who all are still in school. She lives in a village of the Tbaung Khmum district where crop farming is a common way to earn a living. She is a farmer who has been farming rice on one hectare of farmland for almost twenty years. She supplements her income by planting cassava on one hectare of farmland. Having earned a living as a farmer, she has been challenged by unhealthy rice crops and pests.

Sina, who has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles, is now leading a group of four female members. Two of her group members have just been with VisionFund this loan cycle while the other one has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle. The past loans have helped Sina to afford to renovate her old house. She now can earn up to KHR 18,000 per day from her current business. Having successfully paid back the loans, she is leading her group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and seedlings for her farmland. She hopes to make more income from her business and keep her children in school.
