A loan of $400 helped a member to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her cash crop.

Sao's Group's story

An industrious mother originally from Thmor Koul district of Battambang province, Sao is fifty years old and a widow. She raises her children as a single mother via planting various kinds of vegetables, including spices, cabbage, and Chinese kale for resale. It is the business that she has had for 20 years.

This is the sixth-cycle loan for Sao and one of her co-borrowers and a second-cycle loan for the remaining member; they are in the same group of three. Sao’s successful loan, which she has repaid, has enabled her to sustain her living conditions in a gradual manner.

Now, the total requested loan amount for her entire group loan is 1,600,000 KHR. Sao, the group leader, whose loan portion is 200,000 KHR, will spend her loan portion to buy fertilizer and insecticide for her cash crop. She hopes that she can keep gaining a good yield from her vegetable garden.
