Cheoun's Group's story

Cheoun, 47, is a citizen residing in a rural area of Moung Russey district located in Battambang province, Cambodia. She is married and has nine children. Five of her children -- one daughter and four sons -- are school-aged children and still dependent on her. The other four (sons) are working for others as paid workers.

To cover her daily expenses and meet the needs of the family, she farms rice and grows sesame, the businesses in which she has been involved for 15 years. Cheoun has been with VisionFund for one loan cycle already, with which she succeeded in better supporting the living standards of her family.

Now Cheoun together with her fellow group member, Mom, are requesting a loan in the amount of 2,200,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) in total. Cheoun will spend her requested loan portion, which is 1,200,000 KHR, on purchasing fertilizers, pesticide and gasoline. This loan portion will allow her to harvest good quality yields so that she can sell at very good prices to boost her income.
