A loan of $350 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his farmland.

Sary's Group's story

Sary is 55 years old, and lives with his wife and seven children in a village, in the Thmor Koul district of Battambang Province. Two of his children are still of school age, and Sary looks after them.

Sary and his wife are rice farmers, and they supplement their family’s income by working for others farmers. They have been doing this for seven years, earning about 22,000 Cambodian Riels (KHR) per day to feed the family.

Sary has been with VisionFund for five loan cycles, while the other member of the loan group is new this cycle. Sary managed to completely pay back his past loans, which have helped him to better support his family with enough food. Now, he is leading this group of two to request a new loan. Sary will use his portion of the loan to buy fertilizer and pesticides for his farmland. He hopes this loan will enable him to grow healthy and profitable rice, so he can improve his standard of living and keep his children in school.
