A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizers for her plantation..


Chekmach's Group's story

Chekmach is a 32-year-old mother of three children living in a rural area of the Dambe district, Cambodia. All of her children are still studying in the local area. She and her husband are peasants who have been planting cassava as their main business for twelve years. The current business earns her about 13,000 KHR per day and they can save about 7,000 KHR each day after expenses. The main challenge for her family's business is the decrease of cassava's price, which has affected her family's income.

This is the first micro loan for Checkmach's group of three members who are all female. As the leader, she and the other two members are applying for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR each. She will use her portion to buy fertilizers for her plantation and use a portion of it to spend on labor. She hopes to grow her cassava business and earn more income to better her family's living conditions.
