A loan of $550 helped a member to buy a pot for making snacks.

Saret's Group's story

Saret, aged 57, living in a rural village of the Ek Phnom district has nine children, one of whom is still dependent on her and still in school. She has been selling snacks for thirty-one years and her husband works as a paid worker in a local area. Together, she and her husband can earn about 48,000 KHR per day and manage to save about 10,000 KHR each day.

Saret has been with VisionFund for three cycles while the other member is just with VisionFund this cycle. She fully paid back the past loans which have helped her to alleviate her family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now she is leading her group to request another loan. Saret, who is the leader, will use her portion to buy a pot for making snacks and use a portion to spend on buying school materials to support her child’s education. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her current business so as to make a living better and keep her child in school.
