A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer to boost crop yields.

Chreb's Group's story

Chreb, 35, is an original citizen from a rural area of Kror Kor district in Pursat province. She has five sons to cater to; three are still in school, while the other two are still young. To provide decent food for her children, she and her husband struggle to earn income by growing paddy rice in their two hectares of farmland. Her husband also works for others for a fee in his spare time to generate additional income.

Chreb has been in the rice business for 13 years and is able to earn almost 16,000 Cambodian riels (KHR). She has been with VisionFund for five cycles and paid back her entire loan with success. The past loans have helped her to provide timely support for her business and thus earn a decent income. As a result, she can buy chickens and pigs to raise for extra income.

In order to boost her yield and keep making good progress with her business, Chreb formed a group of three women to seek a new loan. Chreb is seeking 800,000 KHR, while her two fellow members are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each. As the group leader, Chreb will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer to boost her yield. She expects to maximize her production so she can maintain her standard of living.
