A loan of $275 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her cultivated land.

Lon's Group's story

Lon is a 39-year-old married mother of four children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school. Her family lives in a rural area of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Cambodia.

Cassava planting is the main source of the family’s income. Lon has been in this business for six years. Sometimes her husband also complements the income by working for others for a fee. The current business earns her about 32,000 KHR per day and she manages to save about 9,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Lon has been with VisionFund for one cycle and completely paid back the past loan, while the other member is just with VisionFund this cycle. The first loan has helped Lon to support her current business. Now she is leading her group to request a loan.

Lon wants to use her portion to buy fertilizers for her cultivated land and use a portion of it to spend on labor fees. She hopes to get a high yield from her cassava planting so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.
