A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland, and cement for her husband's house-building business.

Eng's Group's story

Eng, 48, is married and resides in a rural village of the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Cambodia. She has six children, three of whom are dependents and still in school. She earns a living through cultivating rice, while her husband is a house builder. Having been in the rice farming business for more than twenty-five years, Eng can earn about 25,000 KHR per day from her current business. She manages to save about 12,000 KHR each day, after living expenses, for future needs.

This is a group loan for Eng's Group, which consists of three members who live in the same area. Eng has been a member of VisionFund for two loan cycles already, while the other group members are first- and fifth-cycle clients. Eng's past loans from VisionFund, which she successfully repaid, have helped her to better support her business. Now leading her group to apply for a new loan from VisionFund, Eng (who is the leader) will use her portion of this loan as follows: she will use part of the money to buy fertilizers for her farmland, and part to buy cement for her husband's business.

With this loan, Eng hopes to increase her current business, and also hopes to earn a larger income to make a better living and keep her children in school.
