A loan of $700 helped to buy fertilizer for her farmland and inventory for her grocery selling business.


Kosol's story

Kosol is a 27-year-old, married mother, who lives with her husband and three children in a rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. All of her children are dependents and in school. To support a family, Kosol sells grocery items in her local area, and her husband is a rice farmer. They have been in these businesses for seven years, to make a living. Her family's daily income is approximately US$20, and they can manage to save about US$2.50 each day, after covering their daily living expenses. Scarcity of water supply is the main challenge for Kosol and her husband, in the rice farming business. Kosol is in her first loan cycle with VisionFund. Now she is applying for a loan of US$700. She wants to use part of this loan to buy fertilizer for her farmland, and use part of it for buying more grocery items for resale. Kosol hopes her loan will improve her standard of living, as well help to increase her income from her current businesses.
