A loan of $950 helped a member to pay the plowing and harvesting fees for her farmland.


Rat's Group's story

Rat, aged 62-years-old, is married and has three children - one daughter and two sons, one of whom is still dependent on her and helping the family’s business. Rat has been engaged in rice cropping on three hectares of farmland for 31 years as her primary source of income. Typically, she is able to make about 18,000 Cambodian riel (KHR) per day. Rat has taken a loan from VisionFund twice before and has completely repaid each loan. The previous loans helped to cover her family's daily expenses and to maintain her business activities. Now, she has formed a group of four female members to request a new loan. All group members have already completed at least one or two loan cycles before this one. Rat is seeking 1,100,000 KHR and she, as the group leader, will use her loan to pay for plowing and harvesting fees. She hopes to grow her rice successfully so that she can pursue her main goal of improving her living conditions significantly.
