A loan of $750 helped to buy pesticides and fertilizers for her farmland.


Sarat's story

Sarat is aged 31 years and living with her family members in a rural village located in the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She is married with three dependent children. Rice farming, cassava and cashew planting have been the main sources for her family’s income for 12 years. The current business earns her about 56,000KHR per day and she manages to save about 20,000KHR each day for the future needs.

Sarat has been with VisionFund for four cycles and completely paid back the loans. She successfully used the loans from VisionFund to improve her family’s living conditions and now she is confident to make a better living. Now she is requesting a loan to buy pesticides and fertilizers for her farmland. She hopes to grow her rice healthily and fruitfully so as to sell it for a good price to improve her family’s lifestyle and build on her savings to extend her farmland.
