A loan of $550 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Sarat's Group's story

Sarat is a villager from a rural area of the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district of Cambodia. She is 33 years old and married. Sarat has two children, all of whom are currently in school. To support the family, she has been involved in farming rice while her husband works as a motor repairer in a local area to earn additional income for the family. Her family’s daily income is approximately 15,000 KHR but she can manage to save about 10,000 KHR per day after offsetting daily expenses.

Sarat has been with VisionFund for two cycles while the other member has been with VisionFund for four cycles. She completely paid back the past loans which have helped her improve her living conditions. Now she is leading her group to seek another loan. Sarat, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it on buying spare parts for her husband’s business. She hopes to earn more income from the current business so as to better her family’s standard of living and keep her children in school.
