A loan of $925 helped a member to buy vegetables to sell in the market.

Lily Lom Group's story

Hechong is one of the member of Lily Lom and she is featured with her hand raised. Hechong and her husband live in a village with their three kids. As a saying goes, “Beggars can’t be choosers,” and this applies to Hechong. She takes up all possible ways of earning, say for example cutting trees for firewood, construction of roads, and farming in the jungles. Her income generating activities are undependable and unreliable.

Hechong wants to get the loan and start her own business by selling vegetables in the nearby market . She firmly believes that this will enable her to earn more on a daily basis and have some savings because it is a non-seasonal business activity. She wants to give a better education to her kids as she was deprived of this facility when she was a kid. She narrates the disadvantages and obstacles she faced in regards to running the family since she is not educated.

Hechong is elated to share her dreams as she assures herself that she will work with her heart and soul for her dreams to come true. She wants to thank WSDS for the assistance and wishes to continue working with the organisation.

The rest of the group members are active in selling vegetables and charcoal.
