Chantha Group's story

Chantha appears the first on the left in the photo, with her group of two members. She is 42 years old and lives with her husband and 3 children in a village in the Prey Veng province of Cambodia. One of her children is a student, while the other two are garment factory workers. For the past 20 years, she and her husband have been operating a rice farm together, typically make around $US 8 daily.

She would like to use her share of the loan to purchase compost and insecticide for cultivating rice.

She believes these purchases will increase her crop yields and get higher profits.

With the profits of this season’s harvest, she is going to purchase more farmland, renovate her house, and help her child to get to college.
