A loan of $900 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Chak's Group's story

A rural villager from the Sangke district of Battambang province, Chak is 63 years, married, and a mother of eight, two of whom are staying with the family and working for others. Chak has been farming rice for thirty five years, earning about 4,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs. Low crop yield is still the main challenge for her paddy rice business.

Chak has received three previous loans from VisionFund, all of which have helped to relieve the family’s burden in terms of spending on daily foods and other expenses. Now leading a group of three female members who live in the same village requesting a new loan from VisionFund, Chak will use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to increase her income from the rice crops to make a better living.
