A loan of $425 helped a member to pay for labor fees for harvesting rice.

Khoern's Group's story

Khoern is a 53-year-old married woman who resides in a rural village of Battambang's Moung Russey district in Cambodia. She has five children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. To support her family, Khoern farms rice on two hectares of farmland. Having been in this business for 10 years, she is able to earn around 25,000 KHR daily. The main challenge for her paddy business is an insufficient water supply to irrigate her fields.

Khoern has been with VisionFund for one previous cycle while her group member just joined VisionFund this cycle. Khoern's previous loan has helped her to relieve her family’s financial burden. Now she is leading her group of two to ask for a new loan. She will use her portion to pay for labor fees for harvesting rice. She hopes this loan will enable her to have a high yield from her rice paddy in order to improve her standard of living and keep her child in school.
