A loan of $775 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizers and to pay for harvesting costs.


Nat's Group's story

Nat, aged 62 years old, is a villager from the Prey Chhor district of Kompong Cham Province. She has three children, and she needs to support one daughter as she cannot earn much money as a garment factory worker. For 42 years, Nat has been growing paddy rice as her main source of income. The lack of working capital to support her business remains the main challenge for Nat. She has now formed a group of four to request a new loan to overcome such challenges.

Nat has been with VisionFund since 2011 when she was a first cycle client. She used the loan successfully and managed to pay back the entire loan. Now, she is leading a group of four female members to seek a new loan. She and one other member are applying for 800,000 KHR each, while other members are requesting 1,000,000 KHR and 500,000 KHR. Nat will use her loan portion not only to buy seeds and fertilizers but also to pay for harvesting fees for her farmland. She hopes to receive more crop yield to earn more income to lease an additional plot of farmland for expanding her paddy rice growing business.
