A loan of $525 helped a member to buy rice seed and fertilizer for her farm.


Thoern's Group's story

Thoern, 36, is married and lives with her family in a village in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, Cambodia. She has four children, two of whom are dependent on her and still in school, while the other two are still too young for school. For the last ten years, Thoern and her husband have been farming rice on a six-hectare farm as the family’s main source of income. Together, they can earn about 25,000 KHR per day from the current business. Thoern has been with VisionFund for two cycles, while the other member of the group has been with VisionFund for one cycle. Thoern completely repaid the past loans, which have helped her provide her family with sufficient food. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, Thoern is going to use her portion of the loan to buy rice seed and fertilizer for her farm. She hopes this loan will enable her to achieve higher crop yields, so she can earn a better living and keep her child in school.
