A loan of $900 helped a member to buy more palm sugar for resale.

Theary's Group's story

Theary, a villager living in a rural area of Kror Kor district in Pursat province, Cambodia, is 41 years old, married, and blessed with one son, who is currently a grade seven student. Theary and her husband earn their living by buying and selling palm sugar, an activity they have been engaged in for 30 years. Each day she earns approximately 21,000KHR.

Theary, who has received five previous loans from VisionFund, is now leading her fellow group members, both of whom have received four previous loans, in requesting a loan of 3,600,000KHR; Theary and one member are applying for 1,400,000 KHR each, while the remaining member is seeking 800,000 KHR.

Theary has repaid her previous loans, which were wisely used to buy household supplies. She will use her current requested loan portion as additional working capital in her palm sugar trading. Through this loan, she hopes to increase her profit and, most importantly, be able to support her son’s education.
