A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Ny's Group's story

Ny is 44 years old and married, living in the rural village of Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has seven children; four daughters and three sons, five of whom are still dependent on her. Ny has been rice farming on 1.5 hectares of farmland, planting fruit, such as watermelons, and corn on one-hectare and supplements her family’s income by fishing and as a paid worker to earn extra income. She has been in these businesses for 28 years and is able to earn around 45,000 KHR per day. The main challenge of her business is low crop yields resulting from flooding.

Ny’s group consists of two female members. She has been with VisionFund for three cycles and successfully paid back the past loans, while the other member just joined this cycle. The past loans have helped her with a better living. Now she is leading this group to apply for a loan with VisionFund. As the group leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her family to make more income to improve their standard of living.
