A loan of $325 helped a member to buy fertilizer to boost her crops.


Yen's Group's story

Yen, originally from a rural area of Dambae District of Kampong Cham Province, is a 42-year-old mother of one dependent son who is still in school. To support her household, she has been planting cassava and sugar cane for five years and manages to earn about 13,000 KHR per day. She can save about 3,000 KHR after daily expenses. Yen's group consists of two female members who are currently second-time borrowers. The original loan, which has been paid back with success, has helped her to sustain her business and improve her living condition. Now, she and her partner are seeking a new loan of 300,000 KHR and 1,000,000 KHR, respectively. She, as the group leader, will use her loan portion to buy fertilizer to boost her crops. She hopes to grow it timely and increase her income.
