Sambo's Group's story

Sambo is a 46-year-old married man with four children. Two of his children, one daughter and one son, are dependents who are currently in school. Sambo lives in the Battambang province’s Ratanak Mondul district of Cambodia. To earn a living, Sambo plants corn while his wife farms rice in order to supplement the family's income. He has received seven previous VisionFund microloans which have helped him to improve his family’s living conditions. His main business challenge is the lack of irrigation to supply his corn field.

Sambo and his fellow group member, who just joined VisionFund as a first-time female borrower, are requesting a 2,100,000 KHR loan. He will use his portion of the loan, 1,400,000 KHR, to cover the cost of plowing his corn field, buying corn seeds and fertilizer, and to cover the cost of labor. In the future, Sambo hopes to expand his business to earn more income.
