A loan of $225 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Saroub's Group's story

Saroub, 50, is married with five children, three of whom are dependent on her and work as paid workers. Her family lives in a house with thatch located in Banteay Meanchey province’s Mongkul Borey district in Cambodia. The main source of the family’s income is farming rice on one hectare. Saroub has been in this business for ten years, earning about 20,000 riels (KHR) per day. She is able to save about 10,000 KHR each day.

Saroub received her first loan with VisionFund one cycle ago and completely paid back the past loan. She has effectively used it to relieve her family’s burden and save some money to buy a motor for commuting. Now she is leading this group of three women applying for a loan with VisionFund. Saroub will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income from the crop yield so as to achieve her dream of buying extra plots of farmland for expanding her business.
