A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Vanthoeurn's Group's story

Vanthoeurn, aged 33, is a villager from a rural area of the Battambang province’s Ek Phnom district, Cambodia. She is married and has three dependent sons, who are either helping with the family’s business or are still in school. She is a teacher at a local school in the community and also a rice farmer. Her husband assists her in making more income through working for others for a fee besides helping her with the rice field.

She can earn about 27,000 KHR per day from the current business in which she has been engaged for almost 10 years. Her main challenge is the unpredictable weather issue, whether drought or flood, which decrease her yields.

Vanthoeurn is a fourth-cycle client with VisionFund. The previous loans have helped her to better support her family, mainly to buy decent food for her children. Now she is leading her group members. As group leader, she will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer for her rice field. She expects to gain high production so as to improve her family’s standard of living.
