A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer and rice seed for his farmland.

Chantha's Group's story

Chantha is 45 years old and he is a married father with three children, one is a daughter who is dependent on him and still in school. He lives in a rural area of Kandal Stoeng district of Kandal province, Cambodia. To support his family, he has been farming rice and sometimes working as a construction worker and his wife works as a garment worker to earn additional income. Having been in this business for 10 years, he and his wife can earn about US$4 per day to meet the family’s needs.

Chantha’s group consists of four members who live in the same village; Chantha and two fellow group members have been with VisionFund for one cycle while the remaining member has been with VisionFund for two cycles. Chantha completely paid back the past loan which has helped him with sufficient food and has supported his child in school. Now he and his group members are applying for the same loan amount, KHR 1,000,000 each. Chantha is going to use his portion to buy fertilizer and rice seed for his farmland and use a portion of it to pay for plowing. He hopes to increase his income from the current business so as to improve his family’s living standard.
