Heng's Group's story

Heng is a mother of six children. She is 42 years old and lives in one of the remote area in Battambang Province. Heng has to support the entire household, especially all of her dependent children who are still in school. She and her husband have been working on their two hectares of farmland to grow rice and on their six hectares to grow corn. They have been in this businesses 13 years already.

As a farmer, Heng's main challenge is the inadequacy of financial support for her crops, which make her unable to have decent food and proper living conditions as others. She earns about two US dollars per day.

Heng joined VisionFund in 2002 for her first loan cycle. Since then, she had taken additional loans and each loan was repaid back successfully. In total, she received loans from VisionFund for eight cycles already and it has helped her to timely plant her crops, which has enabled her to receive more crop yield and improve her living condition.

Heng has now formed a group with another member and they are requesting a loan of KHR 1,400,000 each. As the group leader, Heng will use her portion of of the loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, and hire labor to plow her rice farm and crop plantation. She hopes to earn more money and expand her current businesses.
