A loan of $775 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her farmland.

Ly's Group's story

Ly is a resident of a rural village in the Mongkul Borei district of Banteay Meanchey province. She is a 44-year-old married mother of five children. Ly has earned a living, with her husband, as a rice farmer in the local area for the past six years. To supplement her family’s income, she raises chickens for resale. Now, she still has two dependent sons who are in school. Her current business earns her about KHR 30,000 per day and she manages to save about KHR 12,000 each day for future needs.

This loan is for Ly’s group of three members who reside in the same village. Ly has been a member of VisionFund for two years while the other two members have been members from two to five years. The past loans have helped Ly relieve family's burden and improve her family’s livelihood. She is satisfied with the past loans and is now leading her group members to take out another loan of KHR 1,000,000 each. She will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her farmland and chicken feed, as well as two piglets for raising as an additional source of income. Ly hopes to increase her current business and earn a larger income to improve her standard of living and also keep her sons in school.
