A loan of $500 helped a member to pay for labor costs in harvesting cassava.


Samun's Group's story

Originally from a village of Banteay Meanchey province’s Moungkul Borey district, Samun is aged 57 years and married with three children, four of whom are dependents and still in school. For more than twenty years, Samun and her husband have been growing cassava as the primary source of the family’s income to make a living. They can earn about 30,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day for the future needs. Samun’s group consists of two members and this is the first cycle for her loan with VisionFund. She is now leading her group to ask for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Samun will use her portion to pay for labor costs in harvesting cassava. She hopes to earn more income from her current business so as to improve her standard of living.
