A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.


Saroen's Group's story

Saroen is 46 years old and married with eight children. She lives with her husband in a rural village of the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. Out of her eight children, three are dependents and still in school. She and her husband earn a living through farming rice on two hectares of farmland. Together, they earn about 27,000 KHR per day from the current business and manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day after off-setting expenses. Insufficient working capital to buy fertilizers for applying to her farmland is the main challenge.

Saroen’s group consists of two members who have been with VisionFund for one cycle. The past loans that she successfully paid back have helped her family improve living conditions. Now leading this group to apply for a loan, Sareon will use her portion to buy fertilizers and pesticide for her farmland, as well as use a portion of it to spend on gasoline. With this loan, she hopes to increase her crop yields so as to earn more income to improve her family’s lifestyle.
