A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer, pesticides and seeds for his plantation.

Vuth's Group's story

Vuth, 42, is married and lives with his wife and four children in a village of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province. All of his four children are dependents and still in school. He and his wife have been farming rice, and planting cabbage and cucumbers for twenty years. They supplement their family’s income through catching fish. Together they are able to earn about 50,000KHR per day to feed their family. The main challenge for his family’s business is low crop yield resulting from insects.

Vuth has been with VisionFund for four cycles and fully paid back the past loans while the other member has been with VisionFund for three cycles. Vuth has wisely and successfully used his past loans to support his family and also his current business. Now he is leading his group of two to ask for a loan. Vuth, who is the leader, will use his portion to buy fertilizer, pesticides and seeds for his plantation and use a portion of it to spend on labor fees in plowing the field. He hopes to get a high crop yield so as to sell it for a good price in order improve his standard of living and keep his children in school.
