A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Mean's Group's story

Mean, 51, is married and lives in a rural village of the Pursat province’s Kandieng district in Cambodia. She has five kids, two of whom are dependents; one is still in school while the remaining one helps the family’s business. To support her living, Mean has been farming rice and planting cassava for almost thirty years. Sometimes her husband works for others for a fee to gain additional income. With their hard work, she and her husband manage to earn about KHR 30,000 per day and can save about KHR 10,000 each day for the future needs. Drought is the main challenge for her plantation business.

This is the first loan for Mean’s group with VisionFund. She is now leading her group of four to apply for a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each (a total of KHR 4,000,000). Mean will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labors. Mean hopes to increase her crop yields and sell it for a good price so as to fulfill her dream to raise chickens to improve her lifestyle and keep her child in school.
