Vandy's Group's story

Vandy, 44, is a mother of eight children and lives in a rural area of Thmor Koul district, Battambang Province. To earn a living for her big family, she and her husband have been farming on four hectares of farmland for 12 years. However, the lack of working capital to plow the farmland and buy fertilizer remain the main challenges for her family. Vandy has been with VisionFund since 2011 and successfully repaid a previous loan. The loan has enabled her to improve her living standard and to buy a mini tractor for plowing her rice farm. She now is applying for new loan with VisionFund with her group member who has been with VisionFund for four cycles. As the group leader, she is requesting a new loan in the amount of KHR 1,400,000 and she will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer (KHR 600,000) and hire a laborer to to plow her farmland (KHR 800,000). She hopes to receive a high crop yield and make a better living.
