A loan of $275 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland and household supplies for the family.


Samet's Group's story

A citizen of the rural village of Banteay Meanchey province’s Mongkul Borey district, Samet is 33 years old and married with two dependent children who are still in school.

To make a living and support their family, Samet and her husband have been farming rice on four hectares of farmland as their primary business for ten years. Her family’s daily income is about 30,000 KHR but she can only manage to save about 15,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses.

Samet has been with VisionFund for one cycle and has successfully paid back the past loan. The other member of the group has been with VisionFund for three cycles. Samet wisely used her previous loan to support her children’s education.

Now, she is leading her group of two to apply for another loan of 500,000 KHR each. Samet, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and will use part of it to buy household supplies for the family. She hopes to cultivate her rice to earn more income in order to improve her lifestyle.
