Vern's Group's story

Living in a rural village of the Preshnet Preah district of Banteay Meanchey province, Vern is a 32-year-old mother of two dependent children, who are still in school. She has been growing cassava and selling grocery items for ten years. She can earn a daily income of approximately KHR 71,000 and is able to save about KHR 18,000 each day for future needs. This is the third loan for Vern with Kiva’s partner, VisionFund. She wisely and successfully used the past loans from VisionFund to improve her family’s livelihood and relieve their financial burdens. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticides for her farmland. She hopes to grow her cassava healthfully and fruitfully so as to make a living better and keep her children in school.
