A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy a small boat, which will be used to find the edible snails she sells.


Tuon's Group's story

Tuon is 57 years old. She is a widow and has four children. Although all of her children are married, three of them still need her support. Her main income is earned from fishing, including finding edible snails in the river to sell. She has been in business for 20 years.

She took her first loan with VisionFund in 2011 and has completely repaid the entire loan. The past loan enabled Tuon to meet her current needs as well as to set aside some money for future needs. Now, she can earn up to about $4 per day. As a result, she is confidently leading a group consisting of herself and four members. Three of the members are applying for loans of 1,000,000 KHR each while another member is requesting a loan of 700,000 KHR. Tuon, the group leader, wants to use her portion of the loan to buy a small boat, which will be used to find the edible snails she sells. She hopes to find more snails and sell at a high price so that she can earn more income to repair her house.
