A loan of $1,375 helped a member to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland.

Bur's Group's story

Originally from a rural village of the Ek Phnom district of Battambang province, Bur is a 40-year-old married mother of six children, three of whom are still in school. Rice farming, watermelons, and beans have been the main sources of income for her family for 20 years; and to better support the family and help to earn more income, her husband catches fish. Together, they can earn about 41,000KHR per day to meet the family’s needs and manage to save about 25,000KHR each day for future needs.

Bur’s group consists of five members who have been with VisionFund for one cycle and completely repaid the loan. Past loans have helped Bur better support her family members. Now she is leading her group to apply for a loan. Bur, who is the leader, wants to use her portion to buy fertilizers and seeds for her farmland and use a portion of it to pay for labor. With this loan, she hopes to grow her crop fruitfully and healthily and also hopes to make more income to improve her standard of living and keep her children in school.
