A loan of $175 helped a member to purchase fish to resell to the villagers.


Suong Yim Group's story

Mrs. Suong Y., the leader of this group of five members, lives in Chrok Kov Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. She is 31 and the mother of four children, two of whom are enrolled in school while the others assist their parents at home. Her husband, Ny Seourn, is a farmer. Mrs. SuongY. is also a farmer and palm leaf sewer, but these two activities are not adequate to provide comfortable living conditions; she therefore wants to start another business and is asking for a loan to purchase fish to resell. The loan is necessary because in June of 2007, Mrs. Suong Y. got a bleeding cough, the treatment of which imposed unexpected expenses on the family, leaving insufficient money to start the new business.
