A loan of $1,000 helped purchasing tall grass in bulk to make brooms.

Buth's story

Buth S., 32, has a business making and selling brooms at a local market in Takeo province to earn approximately US$ 4 each day. Her husband stays at home and helps her making brooms. The brooms are made from a kind of tall grass which grows in the forest. Both husband and wife learned how to make brooms from their neighbors and they started doing that business back in 2002. This couple has two school-aged children.

Buth S. told a loan officer that every month she needs to spend around US$ 45 on food and US$ 5 on utilities. Buth S. is asking for a loan of US$ 1000 to purchase the tall grass in bulk. This will save money and allow her to increase the number of brooms they can make. (Buth is pictured with her husband and her child.)
