Huon's story

Residing in Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang Province, Huon is a 46-year-old mother of seven children. As one child has been living independently, she needs to support the other six kids who are still in school. She grows corn on one-hectare of farmland as the main source of income and sells fish as additional income. She has been with these businesses for 10 years for the sake of her family.

With the current businesses, she can earn up to 25,000 KHR (about 6 US Dollars) and is able to save about 5,000 KHR only. As a corn farmer, her main challenge is drought. Huon has never been with VisionFund before. She is now requesting a loan of 2,500,000 KHR to buy not only fertilizer for her cornfield but also a motorbike as mobile transportation to sell the fish from one village to another village. She hopes to generate more income from both businesses so as to have sufficient food.
