A loan of $625 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her rice and watermelon crops.

Met's Group's story

Met resides in a rural village of the Ek Phnom district, Battambang province. She is aged 32 years and a widow. She has two children to take care of, one of whom is in school. To support the family, she has been struggling in cultivating rice and watermelons, and fishing, for 15 years. Sometimes, she works for others for a wage, to earn additional income. Currently, she earns about 57,000KHR per day to meet her family’s needs, and she can save about 17,000KHR each day, after daily living expenses.

Met has been with VisionFund for two loan cycles, while the other member of her group is just with VisionFund this cycle. The previous loans have helped her to better support her family's living conditions.

Now Met is leading her group of two, to seek a loan of 1,400,000KHR and 1,000,000KHR, respectively. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her crops. She hopes this loan will enable her to grow her rice and watermelons timely and fruitfully, so as to make a better living and keep her child in school.
