A loan of $800 helped to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his farmland.

Pret's story

Pret is age 55 and is living with his family members in a rural village located in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. He is married with three children, all of whom are dependents and still in school. Rice farming on five hectares of farmland has been the only main source for his family’s income for thirty years. Lacking working capital to buy fertilizer for applying to his farmland is the main challenge for his farming business.

Pret has been with VisionFund for four loan cycles. He successfully used the loans from VisionFund to improve his family’s living condition and now he is confident of making a better living. Requesting a loan with VisionFund of US$800, Pret will use this loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his farmland. He hopes to grow his rice healthily and fruitfully so as to sell it for a good price to improve his family’s lifestyle and keep his children in school.
