A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer for farmland.

Sinuon's Group's story

Sinuon, 35, is a rural villager in the Dambae district of Cambodia. She and her husband work as farmers in order to feed their three children, two daughters and one son, who are still in school. For ten years, Sinuon has been planting cassava as a primary source of income for her family. She supplements this income by planting rubber trees. With the current business, she can earn around 21,600 KHR per day and can save around 9,000 KHR each day for the future. Falling cassava prices are the main challenge she faces in her business. This greatly affects her family's income.

Sinuon is pictured with her loan group, which consists of four members. Sinuon is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each with VisionFund. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for farmland. She hopes to make more income so she can keep her children in school and improve their future employment prospects.

This is the first loan for Sinuon and two other members, while the fourth member has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles.

In this group: Sinuon, Soknaet, Khorn, Mary
