A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Chandy's Group's story

Chandy is a 32-year-old rice farmer who lives with her husband and two children in a rural area of the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. All of her children are still in school. Besides rice farming, she also plants mango trees on a 1-hectare area of farmland. Engaging in this occupation for 12 years, she can earn approximately 44,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and manages to save about 20,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. A lack of working capital is the main challenge for her business. Chandy has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles while the other group member has been with VisionFund for three cycles. She completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her constantly support her family with enough food and basic necessities. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. Chandy is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and will use a portion of it to buy piglets for raising. She hopes to increase the income from the current business so as to fulfill her dream to buy plots of farmland for planting rubber trees in order to earn additional income for the family.
