A loan of $400 helped a member to buy four sacks of fertilizers for her rice farm.

Kim's Group's story

Kim, a 60-year-old married mother originally from Sampov Meas district of Pursat province, is a mother of seven children. For daily basic needs, she has been growing rice for 30 years as the primary source of income. She also uses her spare time in planting water convolvulus (water spinach) and working for others for a fee to increase her income.

It is quite challenging for her as there is not enough rainfall for supporting her rice cropping. Kim has taken loans from VisionFund four times and has smartly used her loan to maintain good progress in her business and her household, and her loans have been paid back consecutively.

Now, she is the leader of her group which consists of five members. She and another two fellow group members are applying for 400,000 KHR each, while the remaining two members are seeking 200,000 KHR each. She will use her loan portion to buy four sacks of fertilizers. She hopes that this purchase will boost her yield so she can multiply her income and sustain her lifestyle.

In this group: Kim, Sopheap, Kuthy, Phoeurn, Sophat
