A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy two pigs and fertilizer for her rice farm.

Ith's Group's story

Ith is a 60-year-old mother of eight children, one still in school. She lives under a thatched roof house located in the Sampov Meas district of Pursat province. She has managed three hectares of farmland where her rice crop is growing in order to support her entire household. The current business earns about 22,200 KHR per day. The main challenge for her business is the lower crop productivity.

To tackle this issue, she forms a group of four to apply for a new loan. She and one of her co-borrowers are fifth-time clients while another one is a fourth-time borrower, and a remaining one is a second-time borrower with VisionFund. The past loan, which she has paid back with success, has supported her business. Now, the total amount of her group loan is 4,700,000 KHR. Ith will spend her portion, 1,400,000 KHR, to buy two pigs for raising and fertilizer for her rice farm. She hopes that she can get more yield and income so that she can cover her children’s education, improve her living conditions, and expand her business.
