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

Nhanh's Group's story

Nhanh, age 49, lives in a rural area in the Ponhea Krek District of Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has four children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. To support the family, she and her husband have been rice farming on 2.5 hectares, cashew and cassava planting on 2 hectares, and complement the family’s income by raising pigs. They have been in business for 25 years. Together, Nhanh and her husband can earn about 23,000 riels (KHR) per day to meet the family’s needs. Lack of capital to support the current business is the main challenge for her.

Nhanh has been with VisionFund for three cycles, while the other member is just in her first cycle with VisionFund. She absolutely repaid the past loans which have helped relieve her family’s burden and improved their livelihood. Now she is leading her group asking for a loan. Nhanh, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it on furrowing the paddy field. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income so as to achieve her dream of having her own rubber field to manage in order to improve her living conditions.
