A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizers and plow her farmland.

Vorn's Group's story

Living in a thatched roof house in the Moung Russey district’s Battambang province in Cambodia, Vorn is 37 years old. She is married with two dependent children, one daughter and one son, both of whom are still in school. To support the family, she has been involved in rice farming and hairdressing for four years, while her husband works as a paid construction worker to earn additional income. The current business earns her about 18,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and allows her to save about KHR 10,000 each day after deducting daily expenses.

Vorn’s group consists of three members who are all females who live in the same village. This is the fifth loan for her with VisionFund. The past loans have helped her relieve her family’s burden and improved their livelihood. Now, she is leading her group to seek a new loan with VisionFund. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers and pay for labor costs to plow her farmland. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy more hairdressing materials. Vorn hopes to increase her income from the current business to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
