Yen Group's story

This is the group of two members led by Yen, who appears the first on the right. Yen is a 37 year old widowed mother who lives with her school aged child in a village in the Kampong Cham province of Cambodia.

She is a business woman and has been selling vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, and green leaf vegetables in the local market to generate income to support her living expenses. She makes approximately US$7 per day.

She would like to use her share of the loan to add more vegetables to sell. She sees that this loan is an economic opportunity to enlarge her business and also increase her family profits. With the profits from this business, she is going to renovate her house and support her child to get to college.
