A loan of $500 helped a member buy fertilizer for her farm.

Chan's Group's story

Chan, 43, is married with four children. Her family lives in a rural area in the Sampov Meas district of Pursat province, Cambodia. Out of her four children, she still has one child to take care of who is still in school. To make a living, Chan has been engaging in farming rice on 5 hectares of farmland for twenty years, while her husband sells firewood in the local area. She is able to earn about 20,000 KHR per day and manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses.

Chan’s group consists of three members who have been with VisionFund for two cycles. She has fully paid back the previous 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 new loan. Chan will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income so as to better her living condition and keep her children in school.
