A loan of $800 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Sarong's Group's story

Sarong is 25 years old and married. She lives with her husband and son in a rural area located in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She is a rice farmer who has worked four hectares of farmland for several years to make a living. The current business earns her about KHR 30,000 per day to meet her family’s needs. Low crop yields resulting from drought is the main challenge for her business. Sarong has been with VisionFund for one cycle and completely repaid her first loan. She successfully used the previous loan to relieve her family’s burden and improve her livelihood. Her group consists of three female members seeking a new loan, and she is the group leader. One of her members is a third-time borrower while another one is a first-time borrower. As the leader, Sarong will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her crop yields in order to achieve her dream of buying a decent motorbike for commuting.
