A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her plantation business.


Masom's story

Masom, 53, is married with three dependent children. Her family lives in a house with a thatch roof located in Kampong Cham province’s Dambae district and the main sources of her family’s income are from farming rice on five hectares of farmland and planting cassava and beans in her village. She has been running her business for 6 years, earning about US $12 per day and she is able to save about US $5 each day.

Masom has been with VisionFund for one cycle and completely paid back the past loan, which has helped her to relieve her family’s burden. She is now applying for another loan of US $1,000 to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her plantation business. She hopes to earn a high crop yield from her plantation business.
