A loan of $475 helped a member to pay for labor costs in harvesting rice.

Sarem's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of the Siem Reap province’s Srey Snom district, Sarem is 36 years old and married with two children, both of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

She earns a living through farming rice to feed and support her family members. Having been in this business for five years, she is able to earn about KHR 5,000 per day and manages to save about KHR 2,500 each day for future needs.

Sarem is a third-cycle client with VisionFund, and she completely paid back the past two loans. She smartly used the loans to make her living gradually improve.

Now she is leading her group of three to ask for a loan. Sarem, who is the leader, will use her portion to spend on labor costs in harvesting rice. She hopes to get a high crop yield so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.
