A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers and grocery items.


Thorn's Group's story

Thorn is aged 29. She is married and blessed with three children, two daughters and one son. She lives in a rural village of the Mongkul Borey district in Cambodia. To earn a living, she has been involved in rice farming and grocery selling for 10 years. She supplements her family’s income by working as a paid worker. Thorn is able to earn around KHR10,000 per day from her current business. The main challenge for her is low crop yields from crops that have been destroyed by floods.

Thorn has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles, while her fellow group member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. She has used the past loans successfully to make her family's living conditions better. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan with VisionFund of KHR 1,200,000 each. As the group leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and grocery items for resale. With this loan, she hopes to get more income from her business for supporting the family for a better life.
