A loan of $975 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her sugarcane and more sugarcane trees for planting.

Norn's Group's story

Norn is 60 years old and married with ten children, four of whom are dependent on her and still in school. She grows rice and plants sugarcane to make a living. To add more income, she and her husband have been working as paid workers in the local area. With the current business, Norn can earn about KHR 30,000 per day to meet her family’s needs and is able to save about KHR 10,000 each day for the future needs.

This is Norn’s Group loan with VisionFund Cambodia. She has been with VisionFund Cambodia for six cycles, while the other members have been with VisionFund Cambodia from three to seven cycles. The past loans, which Norn completely repaid, have helped her to better support her family and to have sufficient working capital for her business.

With a good business, she is leading her group to apply for another loan. As the leader, she wants to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her sugarcane and to use a portion of the loan to purchase more sugarcane trees for planting. She hopes to grow her rice as well as sugarcane in a timely manner, so as to sell them for a high price, to earn a larger income. She also hopes to extend her current business.
