A loan of $625 helped to plow the field.

Yem's story

Yem is aged 30 and married. She has three children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. Living in a village in the Damabe district, Yem is growing rice while her husband farms the rice to make a living. They earn about 85,000 Cambodian Riels (KHR) per day, and she can bring home about 45,000 KHR each day after subtracting the daily expenses.

This is the third loan for Yem with VisionFund. She has completely repaid the past loans, which have enabled her family to buy a plot of farmland. With this loan, she is planning to use the proceeds to plow the field. She hopes to make more crops and to sell them for a good price.
