A loan of $750 helped to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland.

Saphorn's story

A villager from a rural area located in the Kror Kor district of Pursat province, Saphorn is 29 years old and married. She has one son. The primary sources of her family’s income are sales of grocery items and rice farming and cassava planting. To better support the family, her husband sometimes works for others for wages. With 13 years of business experience, Saphorn can earn about 34,000 KHR per day, of which she manages to save about 12,000 KHR each day after paying her expenses. The main challenges for her family’s business are a drop in cassava’s price and unhealthy rice crops.

Saphorn has been a member of VisionFund for one cycle already, and she wisely and successfully used her first loan to improve her family’s livelihood and relieve their financial burden. She plans to use the requested loan of 1,500,000 KHR to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland, and she will use a portion of it to pay for labor. She hopes to improve the health of her rice and cassava crops in order to increase her family’s income, to better her living conditions, and to keep her child in school.
