A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.


Yis's story

A diligent farmer from Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Yis is a 59-year-old married mother of four children. To earn a daily living, she and her husband have been growing rice. She has been engaged in this business for thirty years. For her, the main challenge are the floods that destroy her crop output. The current business earns her about 36,000 KHR per day and allows her to save about 10,000 KHR each day after daily expenses.

Yis has been with VisionFund for two cycles and completely paid back the past loans which have helped her to relieve her family’s burden and improve their livelihood. Now she is requesting a new loan of 1,500,000 KHR to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She will use a portion of it on labor costs for plowing the field.
