A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fertilizer, gasoline and insecticide for her rice farm.


Soem's Group's story

Soem is 51 years old and married. To cover the daily cost of living for her children, she grows rice on five hectares of farmland, with support from her husband. She has been in rice farming for 10 years. This is the fifth loan cycle for Soem, and the third loan cycle for her co-member in the group of two. Soem's past loan, which she has completely repaid, relieved her family's burdens and improved its livelihood. Now, she is the leader of the group to apply for a new loan. She will use her portion of the loan to buy fertilizer, gasoline and insecticide for her rice farm. She hopes to gain a yield better than last year's, so she can keep a good pace of her lifestyle as well as her business.
