A loan of $475 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Non's Group's story

Non, a 34-year-old married woman, lives in a rural area of the Tbaung Khmum district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia. She has three dependent children.

To make a living, she has been farming rice for fourteen years while her husband works for others for a fee in the village. Non and her husband can earn approximately 20,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 12,000 KHR a day, after offsetting for daily expenses.

Non’s group consists of two members who have been with VisionFund for one cycle and have both paid back their past loans in full. Non wisely used the previous loan for her children's education and to support her family. Now she is leading her group to apply for a second loan. As the leader, Non will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to successfully grow her rice and earn a larger income to improve her family’s living conditions and to keep her children in school.
