A loan of $700 helped a member to buy rice seeds, fertilizers, and pig feed.


Chhean's Group's story

Not much different from other remote areas, Sangke District of Battambang province is the place in which rice farming is one of the common businesses for other villagers as well as for Chhean's family.

Chhean is a mother of three children who are still under her responsibility. She has been growing rice for fifteen years as the main source of income and she also raises pigs for selling as the extra income.

This is the third loan for Chhean. The first two loans, which she completely repaid, have made a better living for her family.

Now she leads a group with three other members to request a new loan. Her requested loan amount is 500,000 KHR and she is going to use some portion of her loan to buy rice seeds and fertilizers for farmland and the remaining for pig feed.

She hopes not only to improve her lifestyle, but also to expand her businesses.

In this group: Chhean, Buo, Chea, Nhork
