A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Ren's Group's story

Ren, a 69-year-old widow, lives with her six children in a rural village located in the Dambae district of Cambodia. She has struggled her life to feed her children as a widow by planting cassava, farming rice and planting water melon. She has been in the rice farming business for 25 years and in cassava and water melon business for 10 years. Her main challenge is the drop in the price of cassava.

Ren’s group consists of two female members and she is in the seventh loan cycle with VisionFund while her member is in the fifth. The past loans from VisionFund have helped her extend her farmland. Currently, she is able to earn around 37,500 KHR per day to spend on daily expenses. With a good business, she is leading her group to apply for another loan of 4,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will use part of her portion to plant rubber as another business for her family and use the remaining portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. With this loan, she hopes to increase her business and earn a larger income to improve her lifestyle.
