A loan of $975 helped a member to buy rice seeds for her farmland, and to buy more grocery items to resell.


Rith's Group's story

Rith is from a rural area located in the Tbaung Khmum district, where rice farming is a common way to earn a living. She is aged 40 years and married. She has four children, who are dependents and still in school. She and her husband have struggled to feed the family by farming rice, and selling grocery items in the village. Having been in business for 21 years, their current businesses earn her family approximately 21,000 KHR per day to meet the family’s needs.

Rith is a third-time borrower with VisionFund, and she has fully paid back the past loans. She is now leading her group to ask for a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion of the loan to buy rice seeds for her farmland, and to buy more grocery items to resell. She hopes to make more income, so as to improve her family's lifestyle.
