Veang's Group's story

Veang, 62, is married and lives with his wife and six children in a village in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province. Out of his six children, he still has one child to take care of who is still in school. He and his wife are rice farmers. He has been in rice farming on three hectares of farmland for 30 years, earning about 30,000 KHR per day to feed his family but he can manage to save about 10,000 KHR after daily expenses.

Veang’s group consists of four members who live in the same village and he has been with VisionFund for four cycles and completely paid back the past loans, which have helped him to relieve his family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now he is leading his group to apply for a loan. As the leader, he is going to use his portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his farmland. He hopes to grow rice healthfully and fruitfully to earn a better living and keep his child in school.
