A loan of $500 helped a member to buy groundnut seeds.

Rom's Group's story

Rom is 43 years old and lives in a village of the Ek Phnom district with her husband and eight children; four (three daughters and one son) of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She is a garment worker and supplements the family’s income through growing corn and groundnuts while her husband is a paid worker in the local area. Having been in this business for twenty years, they can earn about 40,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs. However, low crop yield resulted from insects is the main challenge for her business.

Rom is leading the group of two, who live in the same village of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, to apply for a fifth loan with VisionFund. She successfully used the past loans to better support her family. Now, she and her group members are requesting a loan with VisionFund of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy groundnut seeds and pay for labor. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income and increase the crop yields so as to improve her family’s living standard.
