A loan of $500 helped a member to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland.

Sorn's Group's story

A villager from a rural area located in Battambang province’s Moung Russey district, Sorn is 40 years old and married with four children, all of whom are dependents and still in school. For the past 5 years Sorn has been earning a living through farming on a seven-hectare plot of farmland. Her husband is a fisherman; together they can earn about KHR 24,000 per day from the current businesses and can save about KHR 10,000 each day for future needs. Insufficient working capital to buy fertilizers for her rice field is her main challenge.

This is the first loan for Sorn’s group of two members. Now leading her group to apply for a loan of KHR 1,000,000 each, Sorn wants to use her portion to buy fertilizers and rice seeds for her farmland. She hopes to get a high yield from the rice paddy so as to sell it for a good price and improve her standard of living.
