A loan of $1,200 helped invest in yam business.


Lun's story

Lun S., 26, has two young children and lives in Kampong Cham with her husband, Suon Seang Ly. She is a farmer. She typically pays to harvest a plot of land, and then sells the vegetables in the local food market for around US$2.70 each day.

Her husband sells large amounts of ice to a variety of local businesses and typically makes US$3.80 each day. Lun S. would like to increase her daily income to better support her young family, by investing in her vegetable business. She has asked for a loan of US$1200 to purchase a larger piece of property from which she can harvest yams. In this type of farming system, she will not actually own the land, but will pay to harvest a portion of the land and sell it in the market to make a profit.

She appreciates the opportunities that this loan provides for her family and is looking forward to reaping the benefits of her investment.
