A loan of $275 helped a member to buy a bike and television for his family.

Vanthon's Group's story

Vanthon lives in a rural village of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia. He is 28 years old and married with one son who is too young for school.

To support his family, he has been working for others for a fee for six years while his wife grows cabbages to better feed their family. They earn about 20,000KHR per day and save 5,000KHR each day after expenses. Low crop yield has been a challenge for his business.

Vanthon is new to VisionFund and the other members of his group have been with VisionFund from two to four cycles. Vanthon is leading his group of three to apply for this loan.

Vanthon will use his portion to buy a bike and television for his family. He hopes to improve his family's living condition.

In this group: Vanthon, Sophal, Botom
