A loan of $750 helped a member to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and insecticide for her crop.


Chhouk's Group's story

Chhouk, 35, is a rural villager from Banteay Meanchey province. She supports her entire household, which consists of three children- one of whom remains in school, via rice cropping and her paid working job with the support from her husband. This business earns her about 37,000 KHR per day. These incomes, resulting from the positive impact of her past loan, enable her to better support her living and she can keep her kids in school. Now, she leads a group of three to get a new loan. The total amount of her entire group loan is 3,000,000 KHR, of which 1,000,000 KHR is her loan portion. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer, rice seed, and insecticide for her crop. She strongly believes that she can gain a better yield than before.
