Hean Group's story
Hean is a 32-year-old rice farmer, married with four children in her care. She resides in the Kampong Chhnang province in Cambodia. She has been cultivating rice since 2007. Her husband, who is 36 years old, is a fisherman and rice farmer as well. Moreover, all four children are attending school. Hean and her husband can each earn approximately $5 per day. Hean, pictured first from the right, is a group leader. She would like to request a loan as part of her three-member group. She will use her portion to buy fertilizer and to pay for plowing expenses. This loan will help her have enough money to buy fertilizer for rice cultivation, so she will be able to gain better rice crops to support her family. In the future, she is going to buy more farmland, build a fence around her house, and support her children to earn bachelor’s degrees.
