A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her cassava farm and to hire labor.

Thoul's Group's story

Thoul is 35 years old. She lives in a rural village of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She is a married mother of four, one daughter of whom is dependent on her and still in school.

She has earned a living through growing cassava for several years. The current business earns her about 34,000KHR per day. The low price of cassava in the market is the main challenge for her business.

Thoul has been with VisionFund for four cycles, while the other members have been with VisionFund from one to four cycles. She successfully repaid the past loans, which have helped her relieve her family’s burden. She is now leading her group of five to request a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her cassava farm and will use a portion of the loan to hire labor. Thoul hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income so as to make a better living and keep her daughter in school.
