SamAth is a father of a young son and is a citizen from Mongkul Borey district of Banteay Meanchey province (Cambodia). To cover the daily cost of living, he does rice cropping with support from his wife. He has been involved in this business for five years and is able to save up to 20,000 KHR per day currently. SamAth leads a group of six members. He is a sixth-cycle loan client who has paid back his past loan successfully. The loans have better sustained his business and upgraded his living conditions. For this cycle, he and four other members are applying for 1,000,000 KHR each while his remaining co-borrower is applying for 600,000 KHR. As the leader, he is going to use his portion to buy six sacks of fertilizer for his farmland and to start a small grocery stall for extra income. He hopes to earn more income so that he can build on his savings to fix his house in a proper condition.
