A loan of $475 helped a member to buy seed, fertilizer and insecticide.

Laem's Group's story

Laem is 27 years old, married and a mother of two children who are still students in the local public school. She and her husband grow corn on their own hectare of farmland for a living. During their spare time, Laem and her husband work as paid workers to earn additional income. With two years of experience in corn-planting, she is able to earn 22,000 KHR and can save only 7,000 KHR per day.

Laem's group consists of four female members and they have just joined VisionFund for this loan cycle in order to apply for a first-cycle loan. As the leader, Laem is going to use her portion to buy seed, fertilizer and insecticide for her corn field. She hopes to receive a good yield and sell with high profit, so she can build on her savings to expand her business.

In this group: Laem, Loeury, Lam, Nuoy
