Chhy's Group's story

Chhy is 48 years old and married with seven children. Three are dependent upon her and work in the local area to support their family. She lives in a rural village of Battambang province’s Thmor Koul district.

Chhy has earned a living by farming rice for 20 years. Her husband is a motor taxi driver and earns additional income for their family. Her business earns about 33,000KHR per day, and she manages to save about 10,000KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Low crop yield, resulting from a flood is her main business challenge.

Chhy’s group consists of two women, and she has been with VisionFund for four cycles. The other member has been with VisionFund for three cycles. Chhy successfully repaid the past loans which helped her support her family and business.

Now Chhy is leading her group to apply for another loan. She wants to use her portion to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. Chhy hopes to grow her rice successfully and increase her business in order to improve her family’s living conditions
