A loan of $800 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.


Maen's Group's story

Maen is 33 years old and resides in a rural area of the Sangke district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has two dependent children who still attend school. To make a living, she has been engaged in rice farming on 10 hectares of farmland for 10 years. Her husband supplements this income by catching fish in the local area. They currently earn approximately 70,000 KHR per day from the existing business and manage to save about 20,000 KHR each day after paying daily expenses. Low crop yield is the main challenge Maen faces with her rice-paddy business. Maen’s group consists of three members who have been with VisionFund for one cycle. Maen completely repaid the previous loan, which has relieved her family’s burden and improved their livelihood. Now She is leading her group to apply for another loan. As the leader, Maen will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and pay for labor fees related to water pumping. Through this loan, she hopes to ensure a large and timely rice harvest in order to make a living better and keep her children in school.
