A loan of $700 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland and casting nets for her fishing business.


Roth's Group's story

Roth, aged 49, is married with four children, three of whom are dependent on her and still in school. Her family lives in a house with a thatched roof located in Battambang province’s Sangke district. The main sources of her family’s income are from farming rice, raising pigs, and catching fish in her village. She has been running her business for 10 years, earning about KHR 30,000 per day and she is able to save about KHR 10,000 every day.

Roth has been with VisionFund for five loan cycles and has completely repaid her previous loans while the other group member has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles. The previous loans have helped Roth to better support her current business and to support her children’s education.

Now she is leading her group to apply for another loan of KHR 1,400,000 each. As the leader, she will use her portion to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy casting nets for her fishing business. Roth hopes to increase her crop yields to earn more income thus making a better living and also keeping her children in school.
