A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.

Sarom's Group's story

A villager residing in a rural area of Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia, Sarom is 35 years old and married. To make a living, she has been farming rice on four hectares of farmland. Her husband works as a teacher in the local area to earn more income for the family. Sarom has six years of experience in her current business, earning approximately 16,000 KHR per day and managing to save around 10,000 KHR for future needs. Insufficient water supply is the main challenge for her faming business.

Sarom’s group consists of five members who live in the same village, and this is the fifth microloan for her with VisionFund. The past loans, which she fully paid back, have relieved her family burden and improve her livelihood. Now she is leading her group to apply for a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use her some of her money to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland, and use a portion of it for labor costs. She hopes to get a high yield from her paddy fields so as to make a better living.
