A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Chea's Group's story

Living in a rural village of the Prey Chhor district of Kampong Cham province, Chea is aged 41 years and married. She has two dependent children, one son and one daughter, all of whom are still in school. To make a living, she has been farming rice for 11 years and is supplementing the family’s income by planting beans and sometimes working for others for a fee. The current business earns her approximately 20,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 6,000 KHR each day for the future. Low crop yield caused by insects is the main challenge for the paddy rice business.

Chea’s group consists of three members who live in the same village, and this is the groups first loan with VisionFund. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to receive more yields and increase her income in order to build on her savings to buy an additional plot of farmland for the purpose of improving a better living and keeping her children in school.
