A loan of $525 helped to buy seeds for his cassava plantation.


Non's story

Non, 37, is married with two children. He is residing in a rural village of the Thmor Koul district of Battambang province. All of his children are dependents and still in school. To support the family, he and his wife have been planting cassava on 2 hectares of farmland for nine years. Together, they can earn about 80,000 KHR (Cambodian riels) per day and can save about KHR 20,000 each day for future needs.

Non is a first loan cycle client with VisionFund. He is now requesting a loan of 2,000,000 KHR. He wants to use his loan to buy seeds for his plantation, and will use a portion of it to spend on plowing the field. He hopes to increase his crop yield so as to sell it for a good price to improve his standard of living and keep his children in school.
