A loan of $300 helped to buy gasoline and to insecticide.


Van's story

Van, age 51, is the mother of two schoolchildren and a rural villager from Thmor Koul district of Battambang Province. To meet the daily basic needs of the family, she and her husband grow rice on four hectares of farmland. To supplement the family’s income, her husband also works for others for pay.

Van has 13 years' experience in her current business. Her main challenge is low yields caused by insects. To overcome this challenge, she is applying for her second loan from VisionFund (Cambodia). She has repaid her original loan, which helped her to support her rice farm and return a decent income to cover the family's daily expenses. She will use the current loan to buy gasoline for pumping water and to buy insecticide to reduce the loss of crops on her rice field. Van will also use a portion of the loan to fix her motorbike, which she uses to commute to the rice field. She hopes to make more income so she can keep improving her living and supporting her children’s education.
