Proen's Group's story

Proen, 37, is a rice farmer from the Moung Russey district of Battambang Province. She has two children, one daughter and one son, both of whom are still in school. Proen has grown rice on two-hectares of land for ten years, while her husband works for others for a fee to better support her family. She can earn about KHR 20,000 per day and manages to save about KHR 14,000 each day after daily expenses. Proen has been with VisionFund for five loan cycles and has fully repaid the loans, while the other member of her group has been with VisionFund for three cycles. Proen used the previous loans to relieve her family’s economic burden and improve her livelihood. Now she is leading her group of two members to request a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland as well as to pay labor fees for harvesting the rice. She hopes to get a high yield from her rice paddy.
