Oeurn's Group's story

Oeurn is 46 years old and married. She has three children, one of whom is still in school and under her dependency. For her, rice cropping and cucumber planting are the primary source of income; she’s been engaged in this for ages and it gives her a decent income: about 19,000 KHR. The main challenges for her are the shortage of working capital to support her farmland and the low yield due to pests. To overcome these challenges, she has formed a group composed of three female members to apply for a new loan. She is a second-time borrower who has repaid her past loan already. The loan has supported her and her husband in a good manner. Moreover, she can afford to buy household items for her kids too including a TV, table, cabinet etc. Now, the total of her group loan is 2,400,000 KHR. For Oeurn, her loan portion will be used to purchase potash, rice seed, and pesticide. She hopes to increase her yield and earn more income.
