A loan of $600 helped a member to buy an additional plot of farmland to expand paddy rice growing business.


Yat's Group's story

Yat, 59, is a married woman living in Ponhea Krek district of Kompong Cham Province. She has seven children, four of whom live with her; some are helping the family business while one of the remaining is a house-builder and another one is a teacher at a local public school.

Yat has been farming on three hectares of farmland to overcome her family's hardships. From her current business, she is able to earn about 19,000 KHR per day. She took out her the first loan with VisionFund in 2011. The loan which she entirely paid back has enabled her to maintain her household better than before.

Now she and her group member, as second cycle clients, are seeking a loan of 1,200,000 KHR each. As the group leader, Yat will use her loan to buy an additional plot of farmland to expand her paddy rice growing business. She hopes to receive more crop yield and make more profit.
