A loan of $800 helped a member to buy extra souvenirs to sell.


Song's Group's story

This is a group loan for four borrowers. They all live in the province of Siem Reap. The leader, Mrs. S., is 29 years old, married, and has two kids. Both of her children are students and are dependent on her. Her husband, Savuth, 33, owns a boat that he uses to provide a transportation service and he is able to earn around $5 a day.

Mrs. S. owns and runs a small enterprise selling souvenirs to tourists who come to visit the temples. Recently, S. sold nearly all her items and she wants to acquire more for her shop. Because S. doesn’t have money, she decided to request a loan as capital to buy extra souvenirs to sell.

The three other borrowers are:

Mrs. K., 31, a fish seller, who needs a loan to increase her business capital.

Mrs. C. works as a laborer in a night club and requests a loan to add to her savings in order to buy a new motor to meet her travelling needs.

Mrs. S. is an internal staff member in an entertainment club and needs a loan to replace her old motorcycle.
