A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her farmland.

Chhoern's Group's story

A widow living in a rural village located in the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Chhoern is 55 years-old and has six children. Chhoern is a rice farmer in the local area and she has been in this business for thirty years to support her family. The current business earns her about 25,000KHR per day and she manages to save about 8,000KHR each day after daily expenses.

Chhoern is a first cycle client with VisionFund while the other member is a third cycle client. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a loan of 1,000,000KHR each. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her farmland, and use a portion of it to spend on labor costs in ploughing the paddy-field. She hopes to grow her rice healthfully and fruitfully so as to make a better living.

In this group: Chhoern, Savy
