A loan of $475 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticides for her farmland.

Pheap's Group's story

Pheap lives with her spouse in the village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. She is a 36-year-old mother of three children, all of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

To make a living, she has been farming rice on a 3-hectare area of farmland for 10 years. To add up more income, her husband also works as a construction worker in the local area. Her family daily income is about 20,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day and can save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy field.

Pheap has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles. The past loans, which she completely paid back, have supported her family's living conditions. Now she is leading her group of two to ask for a new loan. Pheap will use her portion to buy fertilizer and insecticides for her farmland and will use a portion of it to spend on purchasing necessary construction supplies for her husband’s business. She hopes this loan will enable her family to earn a large income so as to better her standard of living and keep her children in school.
