Ly's story

Ly is a 39-year-old mother of four schoolchildren. She and her husband, a security guard, live in the Sa Ang district of Kandal province.For the past twenty years Ly has farmed rice and grown bitter melon and taro in her vegetable garden. This labor earns her almost 43,000 KHR from which she is able to save about 11,000 KHR after expenses. Ly is now applying for a 1,000 USD loan through VisionFund. She is going to use the money to buy fertilizer and insecticides and to pay for plowing fees. A portion of it will also be applied toward the purchase of a water pump. Ly hopes this loan will help her boost her crop production and multiply her income. With success, she will be able to repay the loan and afford to buy clothes and decent food for her children.
