A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy fertilizer and seed for her bean planting.

Kong's Group's story

A citizen from a rural area of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Kong is a 46-year-old widowed mother of four children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. Farming rice and growing beans are the main source of the family’s income and Kong has been struggling to feed her children for twenty years. To supplement the income, she also catches fish in the local area. Her daily income is approximately 40,000 KHR and she manages to save about 10,000 KHR each day after deducting daily expenses. Low crop yield resulting from floods is her main challenge.

Kong has been with VisionFund for five cycles and completely paid back the past loans which have helped her to better support her family’s living condition. Now she is leading her group of five to seek a loan. As the leader, Kong will use her portion to buy fertilizer and seed for her bean planting. She hopes this loan will enable her to get a high yield from her current business in order to improve her lifestyle.
