Sileap's Group's story

Sileap is a peasant residing in Moung Russey District of Battambang Province with the rest of her family, which consists of five members including her three children. Two of her children are schoolchildren; whereas, the remaining one is too young for schooling. Her main source of income is from corn cultivation, and her supplementary income is from selling sweets in the area. She is able to earn up to 35,300 riels (KHR) per day from the current business that she has been with for five years.

Now, Sileap is leading a group composed of four-time borrowers including her. She has managed her past loan, which has been repaid, wisely and relieved her family burden steadily. She and her co-borrower are seeking the same loan amount of 1,400,000 KHR each. She will use her loan portion to pay a corn reaping fee. She hopes to collect her crop output in good time and sell for a high price. By doing so, she will be able to keep up good progress in her living situation and keep her children in school until the tertiary level.
