A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seed for her farmland.

Choeurn's Group's story

Choeurn lives in a rural village in the Ratanak Mondul district of Battambang, Cambodia. She is 49 years old and a widow, with two daughters, both of whom are dependent on her and are still in school. To support the family, Choeurn has been growing paddy rice on two hectares of farmland. To better feed the family, she also plants red corn and works for others for pay. She has been with her businesses for 10 years and can earn about KHR 8,200 per day. For her, insufficiency of working capital is the main challenge.

Choeurn has been with VisionFund for two cycles and has successfully paid back the loans. The past loans have helped her have enough food and keep her children in school. Now she leads this group and is applying for a loan of KHR 1,000,000 with VisionFund; one of the members is requesting the same amount as she is and another is seeking KHR 500,000. As the group leader, Choeurn will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to improve the family’s condition.
