A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Kheng's Group's story

Kheng, 49, lives in a rural area of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has five children, two of whom are students in the local public area. To make a living, she has farmed rice on two-hectares of farmland for seven years and supplements her income by serving breakfast in the local area. The current business earns her about 26,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 6,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Insufficient water supply for her paddy is the main challenge for her business.

Kheng has been with VisionFund for three cycles and has completely repaid back the past loans while the other group member has been with VisionFund for two cycles. She has wisely used the past loans to better support her family's livelihood and sustain her business. Now she and her fellow group member are applying for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to utilize her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and split a portion of it to spend on buying spices to supporting her breakfast-serving business. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her rice timely and fruitfully and increase her income so as to better her family's living condition.
