A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy fishing nets for her fishing business.

Meysom's Group's story

Meysom, 37, is married and lives with her family in a rural area located in the Sampov Meas district, Pursat province. She is the mother of one son, who is dependent and still in school. She earns a living through farming rice and fishing, which she has been doing for several years. Her husband helps the family to earn additional income, by selling fish and working as a motor-taxi driver in the local area.

Meysom’s group is comprised of four female members, who have been with VisionFund for five loan cycles. Meysom completely paid back the past loans, which have helped her to better support her businesses. Now she is leading her group to request another loan of 1,400,000 KHR, each person. She wants to use her portion of this loan to buy fishing nets for her fishing business. She hopes to catch more fish and to sell them for a good price, to better her family’s living conditions and keep her son in school.

In this group: Meysom, Samang, Som, Mom
