A loan of $650 helped a member to buy pig feed.


Mao's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of Banteay Meanchey province’s Moungkul Borey district, Mao is a 54-year-old mother of five children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. She has raised pigs and worked as a paid worker for eight years. Together, Mao and her husband can earn about 30,000 KHR per day from the current business and can manage to save about 15,000 KHR each day.

Mao has been with VisionFund for five cycles and has fully paid back the past loans while the other members have completed from two to four cycles. The past loans have helped Mao to better support her family. Now she and her group members are applying for a loan. She will use her portion to buy pig feed for nourishing her pigs and use part of it to spend on building a piggery. She hopes to fatten her pigs so as to increase her family’s income and keep her child in school.
