Boun's story

Twenty-seven-year-old Boun is a resident of a rural area of the Moung Russey district, Battambang province, Cambodia. Boun is a father of two children. To make a living, he has been farming rice on four hectares of farmland for four years, and he earns additional income by running a small barber shop in a village. With his current businesses he earns about 23,000 KHR per day. He manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day, after covering the daily living expenses of his family.

Boun has been with VisionFund for one previous loan cycle, and he completely paid back the loan. That loan helped him to relieve his family’s burdens and to improve their livelihood. Now he is asking for a new loan of 2,000,000 KHR. Boun is going to use the loan to buy materials to use in his barber business. He hopes to earn more income, so as to make a better living.
