Ret is a 49-year-old mother of three children. Her children live with her n Tbaung Khmum District of Kompong Cham Province and help with the family's business. Ret grows beans on two hectares of farmland as her main source of income. She also works for others for pay to earn additional income for her family.

Ret confidently leads a group of three to seek a new loan. The other group members have joined VisionFund for one funding cycle. Ret is requesting a new loan for 1,200,000 KHR, while the other two members are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each. She will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland. Ret hopes to grow her beans well so that she can earn more income.
