A loan of $925 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.

Saret's Group's story

A rural villager living in Takeo province’s Bati district, Saret is aged 46 years and married with two children, both of whom are dependents. One is in school while the remaining one is a garment worker to help support the family.

Saret is a rice farmer who has been farming rice on 1.3-hectares of farmland for twenty-one years to make a living, while her husband is a soldier in the local area. Saret can earn about KHR 25,000 per day from the current business and manage to save KHR 10,000 daily for future needs. Drought is the main challenge for her paddy-field.

Saret’s group consists of four members who have been with VisionFund for one cycle. She fully paid back the past loan, which has helped her relieve her family’s burden.

Now leading her group to ask for a loan, Saret, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay for labor fees.

She hopes to increase her farming production to generate more income to improve her family’s lifestyle.
