A loan of $450 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.

Saran's Group's story

Saran, aged 38, is married and has six children, three daughters and three sons. She lives with her family in a rural village located in the Ratanak Mondul district of Cambodia. Three of her children are dependent and still in school.

She earns a living through farming rice on a one-hectare plot of farmland, planting red maize and green pepper. Saran has been in these businesses as the family’s source of income for several years and has faced a few challenges such as low crop yield, decrease of market price, and insects. With her current business, she is able to earn around 25,000 KHR per day to feed her family.

Saran’s group consists of three members who live in the same village. This is the first loan for Saran with VisionFund. Now leading her group to apply for a loan, Saran is going to use her portion to buy seeds and fertilizer and also use a portion of it to spend for land preparation.

She hopes to increase her crop yields and sell her crops for a good price so as to keep her children in school.
