A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Savat's Group's story

A citizen from a rural area of the Sangke district of Battambang province, Savat is 26 years old and married. She has four children, all of whom are dependents. Three are still in school, while the remaining one helps with the family’s business.

For the last 10 years, Savat has been farming rice to make a living. Sometimes her husband catches fish to sell for extra income. Savat’s current business earns her about 60,000 Cambodian riels (KHR) per day. She can save about 20,000 KHR each day for future needs. Low crop yield resulting from flooding is the main challenge for this farming business.

Savat has been with VisionFund for five cycles and has completely paid back the loans. The other member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. Savat has wisely used the past loans to relieve the family’s burden and also to support her children’s education. Now she is leading her group in a request for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland and a portion of it on fishing nets for her husband’s business.

Savat hopes to grow her rice fruitfully and healthily to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
