A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.


Eab's Group's story

A married mother of four children, Eab is 41 years old and lives in a rural village in Cambodia’s Moung Russey district. One of her four children still attends school and remains dependent on her. To support the family, she and her husband farm rice on three hectares of farmland as the main source of the family’s income. They have been in business for 10 years. In addition, they occasionally work for others for a fee.

Eab is in her second loan cycle with VisionFund while her group member is in her third cycle. Eab completely repaid the first loan, which has helped her relieve her family’s burden. She now earns about 20,000 KHR per day from her current business and she is able to save about 12,000 KHR each day. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan. As the leader, she wants to use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her family’s income so that she can improve their standard of living and keep her child in school.
