A loan of $500 helped to purchase a piece of fertile farmland in order to expand her farming business.


Nhem's story

Nhem S. is a low-income entrepreneur who earns a living by planting and harvesting rice crops on her farmland. She is able to earn about $2.50 per day from her farming business to help provide for the needs of the family. Nhem S.’s husband is a fisherman who catches and sells fish from the river near his village.

Nhem S. will use her loan to purchase a piece of fertile farmland, which will allow her to enlarge her crop-growing endeavors during the time that her existing land is fallow.

She and her husband have a baby (shown in the picture) and two children enrolled in school.
