A loan of $675 helped a member to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland.


Ma's Group's story

Ma, 40, lives in a rural village located in the Battambang province’s Moung Russey district in Cambodia. She is a married mother of seven children, three of whom are dependent on her and still in school.

For the last 20 years, Ma has been farming rice to make a living, while her husband earns additional income by catching fish. Together, they can earn about KHR 32,000 per day from the current business and can save about KHR 20,000 each day for future needs.

Ma has been with VisionFund for five cycles and completely paid back the past loans. The other member has been with VisionFund for one cycle. The past loans have helped Ma better support her children’s education.

Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, Ma is going to use her portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland and to have the field plowed. This loan will enable her to extend her farmland and she hopes to raise more rice to make a better living.

In this group: Ma, Chanthou
