A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Ra's Group's story

Ra lives in a village in the Sampov Meas district of Pursat province. She is 29 years old and married with one dependent daughter who is under school age. To support the family, she farms rice on 1 hectare of farmland, and her husband works for others for fees. Ra has been farming rice for three years. As with other farmers, drought is still the main challenge for her rice farming business.

This is the first loan for Ra’s group with VisionFund. Each member of the group is applying for a loan of 1,000,000 Cambodian riels (KHR). Ra was appointed to be a group leader by her members, and she will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes the loan will allow her to grow higher yield crops so as to sell them for a higher price so that she can fulfill her dream of having a decent house for the family and an orange plantation.
