A loan of $925 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticide for her farmland.


Se's Group's story

Living in a rural area of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Se is 53 years old. She has five children, two of whom are dependent and still in school. To support the family, she has been in rice farming on five hectares of farmland for five years and complements the income by selling cakes while her husband works as a paid worker. Having been in this business for 10 years, she and her husband are able to earn about 27,000KHR and manage to save about 10,000KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her business.

Se has been with VisionFund for one cycle while the other members are just with VisionFund this cycle as well. Her past loans have helped her relieve family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now she is leading her group of four members to ask for a loan. Se will use her portion to buy fertilizers and pesticide for her farmland. She hopes her crop yield will become more productive so as to earn more income to make a better living.
