A loan of $625 helped a member to buy pesticides for her farmland.


Somach's Group's story

Somach, 25, lives in one of the remote areas of the Dambae district of Kampong Cham province. She has two children who are too young for school.

To support this family, Somach and her husband have been growing cassava on one hectare of farmland as their main source of income. To better feed the family, Somach also sells grocery items in her village. She has been with both businesses for five years, and she is able to save only KHR 13,000 per day.

This is the second loan for Somach. She has used her first loan successfully in improving her living condition. She is now leading her group to ask for a loan of 1,200,000 KHR each.

As the leader, Somach is going to use her portion to buy pesticides for her farmland and use a portion of it to spend on labor fees. She hopes to grow more cassava to earn more income for her family, so as to make a living better.
