A loan of $1,625 helped a member to buy fertilizers, pesticides and seeds for her farmland.

Thorn's Group's story

Thorn, 35, is married with four children, three of whom are in school. She lives in a rural village in the Moung Russey district of Cambodia.

Thorn and her husband are hard-working farmers who earn a living by farming rice and raising pigs. They have farmed for almost 10 years. Sometimes, Thorn works for others for a fee. With the current business, they earn about 23,000 Cambodian riel per day to meet the family’s need.

Thorn has been with VisionFund for four cycles and has completely repaid previous loans, which have helped the family’s business. She is now leading her group in its request for a loan. As the leader, she will buy fertilizers, pesticides and seeds for her farmland and use a portion for labour.

She hopes this loan will enable her to increase her income and make a better living.
