A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase jasmine flowers from farmers under contract for resale and to buy a pesticide applicator.


Chanthavy's story

Mrs. Chanthavy T. (pictured here), 38, and her husband, Mr. Vichet Meas, 42, were married in 1992 and have four children: three sons and one daughter. The family lives along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Chanthavy and her husband are farmers. They grow jasmine flowers on their farmland. Besides farming, they also sell jasmine flowers at the market in Phnom Penh. Some they buy from farmers in the village for resale; some are from their own farm. Chanthavy is requesting a loan in the amount of $1,000 to purchase jasmine flowers from farmers on contract. She needs to pay money to the farmers first, before the harvest season. She also will use a part of her loan to buy a pesticide applicator to use on her jasmine-flower farm.
