A loan of $800 helped a member to pay for harvesting.

Hean's Group's story

Hean is a mother of six kids, all of whom are attending school. She resides in a rural village of Ek Phnom district (Battambang). For the sake of her family's sustenance and her children's education, she and her husband have been working on their rice paddy, farming for 38 years.

During the spare time, she also works as a fish-cutting worker for pay, whereas her husband raises cows as an extra income source.

Her main challenge is the fruitless crop caused by the drought. Hean has been with VisionFund for six loan cycles and has paid back with success. She wisely has used her past loans to cater for her children and better her business and her household.

For this loan cycle, she and another two clients -- one of whom is a sixth-time borrower, and the remaining one an eight-time borrower -- are borrowing as a group. As the group leader, Hean will use her loan portion to pay for harvesting. She hopes to grow her rice in a timely manner so as to sustain the good progress of her lifestyle.
