Yorn's Group's story

Yorn is 38 years old and a widowed mother living in Sampov Meas district of Pursat District. She has three children under her care, some of whom are still at school while the remaining is helping the family's business.

To strive for a living, Yorn has been growing paddy rice on two hectares of farmland as the primary source of income. In addition to better feed her family as the single mother, Yorn also grows corns, cucumbers, and cabbages. For the several years that she has been with these businesses, she earns about 12,000 KHR per day. Her main challenges are the fruitless cash-crops caused by the drought and the insects.

This is the first loan cycle for Yorn with VisionFund. She joins a group of four female members to seek for a new loan in order to overcome her challenges. One of her group members is also a newly joined client, another one is a third cycled client, and the remaining one is a second cycled client. Yorn and the other three group members are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each.

As the group leader, Yorn will use her loan portion to buy 5 sacks of fertilizer for her rice field. Moreover, she will use a portion of it to buy 10 chickens and one piglet for raising to earn more income. She hopes to receive more crop yields and to raise her chickens and pig healthfully so that she can earn more income. By doing so, she can save some money to buy a motorbike to support her business.
