A villager from a rural area located in the Sangke district of Battambang province, Sert is 56 years old and widowed. She has six children, two of whom are still in school. The primary sources of her family’s income are from rice farming and growing cabbage. Having been in this business for 18 years, she can earn about $14 per day and manages to save about $9 each day after the expenses.
Sert has been a member of VisionFund for one cycle already and she wisely and successfully used the first loan to improve her family’s livelihood and relieve some financial burden. Now she is applying for another loan with VisionFund to plow her cultivated land. She hopes to grow healthier rice and cabbage so as to increase her family’s income, better her living conditions and keep her children in school.
