A loan of $1,050 helped a member to increase her business capital.


Uk's Group's story

This group of borrowers consists of three people. Its leader, Mrs. C., 45, makes a living selling Chinese noodles and porridge in the busy market. She generates an income of approximately US$ 6 each day and started her business back in 2004. Her husband, Savorn, 50 years old, is a staff member for an organization. The humble couple are responsible for two teenage children, both attending school.

C.'s business is running very well and she has gained much profit because she cooks tasty foods for her customers. To earn additional income, C. is looking for a loan to increase her business capital in order to meet her customer's demands.

The other two borrowers are:

B. T., who works as a local chef for wedding parties; she needs a loan as capital to buy wedding equipment so she can rent it out to gain additional income; and

H. who owns a small laundry and provides a clothes-washing service. She is applying for a loan to add to her savings to purchase a used car for her husband to use as a taxi.

The borrowers are people living in Battambang Province.
