A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Chhen's Group's story

A married mother of four children, Chhen is age 58, living in a rural village of the Kandal Stoeng district, Cambodia. Out of her four children, she still has one dependent child to take care of and is still in school. To support her family, Chhen and her husband farm rice and work for others for a fee as the main source of their family’s income and they have been in this business for 30 years. The current business earns her about 27,000 KHR per day and allows her to save about 7,000 KHR each day after offsetting daily expenses. Chhen’s group is composed of three members who are just with VisionFund this cycle. She is leading her group to apply for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Chhen is going to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy a bike for her child to commute to school. She hopes to get a high yield from her paddy-field so as to sell it for a good price to improve her living condition and keep her child in school.
