A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Thun's Group's story

Thun is 38 years old and has six children, five of whom are dependent on her. Some are in school, some work for others for fees. Her family lives in a rural village of Sangke district located in Battambang province, Cambodia.

Thun has been involved in farming rice for 12 years, while her husband is a fishermen. A low crop yield is still the main challenge for her business.

Thun is leading a loan group of three females, all of whom live in the same village. The first loan has helped Thun to better support her business. And now, Thun and her group members are applying for another loan with VisionFund.

Thun, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to grow rice with higher yield, so that she can sell the rice for higher income. Then all her children can remain in school.
