Bunthy's Group's story

Bunthy, 45, is married and living with his family in a village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. He has three sons, all of whom are dependent on him and still in school. For the last ten years, Bunthy has been farming rice on five-hectares of farmland, which is the main source of the family’s income for making a living. Besides this, his wife makes desserts for selling in the local area to gain extra income. Together, they can earn about 26,000KHR per day from the current businesses and manage to save about 10,000KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses.

Bunthy’s group consists of five members and he is a seventh cycle client with VisionFund. The past loans, which he successfully repaid, have helped him support his family's living conditions. Now leading his group of five to request a loan with VisionFund, Bunthy, who is the leader, will use his portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his farmland, and use a portion of it to spend on gasoline. He hopes to grow his rice healthfully and timely so as to make a better living and keep his children in school.
