A loan of $350 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland.

Roen's Group's story

Living in a rural area located in the Moungkul Borey District, where crop farming is a common way to make a living, Roen, 62, is a widowed mother of three children. The sources of her family’s income are from rice farming and producing coops for sale. Sometimes, she works for others for a fee. She has been engaged in this business for 31 years. She can earn about 25,000 KHR per day to feed her family.

Roen’s group consists of two members who have been with VisionFund for four cycles. The past loans have helped Roen to better support her family as well as her children’s education. Now she is leading her group to ask for a loan. As the leader, she is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland, and she will also use some of it to buy bamboo for making coops. She hopes this loan will help her to earn more income for her family so as to improve her standard of living.
