A loan of $650 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Loun's Group's story

Loun is age 55 years and married with four children, one of whom is still in school. Her family lives in a rural area of the Moung Russey District of Battambang Province, Cambodia. To make a living, she has been farming rice on a four hectare area of farmland for ten years. Loun can earn about 47,000 riels (KHR) per day to meet the family’s needs. Lack of working capital to buy fertilizer for her farmland is the main challenge for her paddy field business.

Loun has been with VisionFund for three cycles, while the other member has been with VisionFund for five cycles. Loun successfully used her previous loans to support her family with enough food. Now she is leading her group of two to apply for a new loan. As the leader, Loun will use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes to earn more income from her rice paddy so as to make a better living and keep her child in school.
