A loan of $625 helped to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Oun's story

Oun is a 47-year-old widowed mother of four children in a rural area of the Ponhea Krek district of Kampong Cham province. All of her children are dependent on her; some are still in school and some help the family’s business.

Besides rice farming, Oun also complements the income by working for others for a fee. Having been in this occupation for 23 years, they are able to earn almost 30,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 20,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Low crop yield resulting from drought is the main challenge for her paddy-field business.

Oun has been with VisionFund for one cycle and fully paid back the past loan. She has wisely used the previous loan to better support her family living’s conditions.

Oun is now asking for another loan with VisionFund of 2,500,000 KHR. She is going to use this loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland. With this loan, Oun hopes to cultivate her rice healthfully to earn more income to improve her lifestyle and keep her children in school.
