A loan of $475 helped a member to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and to pay for labor costs.


Khon's Group's story

A rural villager from Dambae district of Kampong Cham province (Cambodia), Khon is a cassava-growing farmer using her one hectare of farmland in order to provide decent food for all of her four school children. She has engaged in this business for 10 years and is able to earn about 16,700 KHR per day. However, her main challenge is the low price of cassava which seriously affects her daily income.

Khon has not been with VisionFund before. Now, she has formed a group with other two members, the second-cycle loan clients, to apply for a loan. She is going to use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and to pay for labor costs. She hopes that this purchase will minimal the loss due to pests and boost productivity. She believes that she will receive a larger yield, so she can keep a good pace of her business and keep her children in school.

In this group: Khon, Hen, Sreang
