A loan of $575 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland.

Neang's Group's story

A rural villager in the Tbaung Khmum district, Neang is aged 49 years and she is a mother of two sons who are still dependent on her. Her two children are still in school. Like other villagers in the village, Neang and her husband are farmers who farm rice on 0.5 hectare of farmland and plant cassava on one-hectare of farmland as the main family's source of income. They have been in this business for more than ten years. The main challenge for her as a farmer is the drop of cassava price after harvest season.

Neang has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle and completely repaid the loan with VisionFund. After the loan, she is able to extend her farmland with the income earned. With her current business, she manages to make her daily income around 18,000 KHR per day to feed the family. Now she is leading the other two members to apply for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland. She hopes to improve her living standard and also keep her children in school until graduation.
