A loan of $425 helped a member to buy fertilizer for a farm and for rubber-tree seedlings.

Savy's Group's story

Savy is 26 years old and the mother of one child who is studying at a local public school. She and her family live in the Dambae district of Cambodia, where she earns a living by growing rice and cassava on her farm. To better feed her family, she and her husband also grow rubber-tree seedlings. Savy has taken out and repaid one previous loan from VisionFund, and used it successfully to improve her family's living conditions and pay to have weeding done on her farm. She leads a two-person loan group and is seeking a loan for 1,200,000 KHR while her co-member is applying for a loan for 500,000 KHR. Savy will use her portion of this loan to buy fertilizer for her farm and her rubber-tree seedlings. Her goal is to grow good seedlings so that she can sell them for a high price and maintain her business.
