A loan of $325 helped a member to buy more piglets and to spend for her cassava plantation.

Yeng's Group's story

Yeng, aged 55, is a mother of six children who lives in a rural village of Dambae district of Cambodia. Four of them (two daughters and two sons) are dependent on her and still in school. She is a peasant who has been farming cassava on 1.5 hectares of farmland as a primary source of income for eight years and she supplements her income by raising pig on the side. The main challenge for her family’s business is the death of pigs and the drop of the price of cassava.

This is the second loan for Yeng’s group of two members who live in the same village. The first loan helped her increase her pigs. With her current business, she is able to earn 23,000 KHR per day. With a good business, she is leading her group to apply for a loan. As the leader, she wants to use her portion to buy more piglets and use a portion of it to spend for her cassava plantation. This loan will enable her to expand her family’s business and she hopes to make a living better and keep her children in school.
