A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay for labor costs.

Thorn's Group's story

Thorn is 64 years old and married. She has six children, one of whom (a daughter) still depends on her and is currently helping with the household chores. Thorn's residential area is in the Moung Russey district of Battambang province, where rice farming is the common business in her neighborhood as well as for Thorn. She and her husband do rice cropping on three hectares of farmland, which she has been engaged in for ten years and is able to earn almost 15,000 KHR.

Thorn's past loan was her original loan. The prior loan, which she has paid back with success, has provided sufficient working capital to support her business and improve her lifestyle. Now, she has formed a group of four female members. She is in the second cycle loan and her remaining three members are in the first cycle loan. All of them are seeking the same loan amount of 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, Thorn is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide, and to pay for labor costs. She hopes to obtain more crop yields with a good profit so she can keep her good standards of living.
