A loan of $550 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her plantation.

Savat's Group's story

Originally from a village of the Ek Phnom District where rice farming is a common way to make a living, Savat is a 42-year-old mother of four children who are still in school.

To make a living, she has been involved in rice farming and grocery selling for 12 years, while her husband also complements the income by raising pigs and cows. A low crop resulting from flooding is the main challenge for her plantation business.

Savat has been with VisionFund for one cycle and completely paid back the past loan, while the other group member is just with VisionFund this cycle. Now Savat is leading her group of two to seek another loan.

As the leader, Savat is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her plantation and use a portion of it to buy pig feed for her pig-raising. She hopes to grow her rice healthfully and fruitfully so as to make a better living and keep her children in school.
