A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice farm.

San's Group's story

Residing in a rural area of Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, San is a 35-year-old married woman with one daughter, a school-aged child. San and her husband earn income for the family through their rice-farming business. They have been in this business for 18 years. They earn approximately 18,000 KHR each day and manage to save around 9,000 KHR after offsetting the daily expenses. The rice field produces a low-quality crop yield, so she is in need of money to buy fertilizers to help improve the quality of her crops.

San leads a group of five female members, all of whom are first-time borrowers with VisionFund. They are taking out a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. Besides buying fertilizers, San will use a portion of her very first requested loan to rent a water pump in order to provide sufficient water for her crops. After receiving this loan and using it in a smart manner, San strongly believes that her family's living conditions will be much better.
