A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice farm.

Bat's Group's story

Bat, 50, is a villager from Kror Lanh District, located in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She is married and has four children, one of whom is still dependent on her. For the past 15 years, she has been making her living by rice farming on four hectares of farmland. To generate more income for her family, she also raises a pig. Every day she earns about 14,000 KHR, and she is able to save approximately 6,000 KHR each day. A lack of sufficient water is a big challenge for her rice farming and has affected her household’s income.

Bat is leading a group of two borrowers, both of whom are applying for their second loans with VisionFund. The first loan helped Bat to increase her crop yield and enabled her to sell her harvest at the market for a profit. Bat and her group member are requesting new loans of 1,000,000 KHR each. Bat will use her portion to buy fertilizers. She hopes that this loan will provide her with a higher crop yield and enable her to improve her standard of living.
