Yuon's Group's story
Yuon is a resident from the Mongkol Borey district of the Banteay Meanchey Province. She is a 35-year-old mother of four dependent children who are still in school. To support their big family, she and her husband have been working a paddy rice field for several years; they also work for others during their spare time for addition income. Yuon earns a daily average of 28,000 KHR from these businesses. She is the group leader for this loan group, and this is their eighth loan cycle. She has managed to pay back previous loans completely, which has enabled her to buy one additional hectare of farmland for growing paddy rice. For this new loan, Yuon's requested loan amount is 1,200,000 KHR, while her member is applying for 1,000,000 KHR. Yuon will use her loan portion to buy 6 sacks of fertilizer and to pay weeding fees for the rice. She expects to increase her crop yields in order to keep expanding her current business and generate more income.
