Raksa's Group's story

Raksa, 26, lives in a rural village of the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district. She is a married mother of two children. Her family’s income is from leasing a rice paddy of two hectares and planting sesame. Sometimes, her husband works for others as a paid laborer. Raksa has been in the farming business for 10 years, to make a living. From the current business, she can earn about KHR 22,000 per day, and she manages to save about KHR 16,000 per day for future needs.

Raksa has been a member of VisionFund for two loan cycles already, and she completely repaid the loans. She used those previous loans from VisionFund successfully, to better support her living. Now she is leading her group to ask for a new loan. As the leader, she is going to use part of her share of the loan funds to buy fertilizers and pesticides for her farmland, and use another part of it to buy gasoline for water pumping. With the profits of this loan, she hopes to extend her farmland to increase her business, so as to improve her standard of living.
