A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer for her farmland and pig's feed.


Heam's Group's story

A resident from a rural area of the Ou Reang Ov district of Kampong Cham province, Cambodia, Heam is 57 years old and married with five children, one of whom is dependent on her and still in school. To make a living, Heam has been farming rice on five-hectare of farmland for 25 years and complements the family’s income by raising pigs. She is able to earn about 15,000 KHR per day and save about 7,000 KHR each day for future needs. Low price of her crop yield is the main challenge for her paddy-field. Heam’s group consists of four female members; all of whom are first-time borrowers and requesting the same loan amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Heam is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer for her farmland and use a portion of it to buy pig feed. She hopes to grow her rice healthfully and fruitfully so as to make living better and keep her child in school.
