A loan of $575 helped a member to buy a casting net and fix the boat.

Kon's Group's story

Kon, age 32, is a mother of four school-age children who are attending the primary school in the local area. She makes a living for her children's sake from the rice farm that she grows as the main source of income. To add up more income, she also raises chickens at home while her husband produces palm sugar and catches fishes for sale. Having been this business for several years, she is able to earn about 11,000 KHR per day.

Kon's group consists of three female members; this is the third loan cycle for Kon, the second loan cycle for one of her fellow group members, and the first loan for the remaining member. The past two loans have helped Kon to sustain her chicken-raising business and to buy a boat for supporting her husband's fishing business.

Now, leading this group for the new loan, Kon will use her portion to buy a casting net for the fish-catching business of her husband and to fix the boat. She hopes that her husband can catch more fishes for sale so as to increase their income to maintain a good standard of living for her family and keep her children in school.
