A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy more ingredients and more products for her store.

Bron's Group's story

This is a small group of five borrowers. K. is 25 years old and is the mother of one young child. She is married to Sokhov, age 35, who runs a bicycle and motorbike repair service in front of his house. K. owns a general store where she sells cooked ingredients, kid's sweets, and plastic and tin containers to the whole community.

Because her store is located in the middle of a busy street, K. can sell many products every day. She is a struggling mother and a responsible neighbor. To meet her family's demands, she has recently planned to increase her income based on her selling. Therefore, K. is taking a loan to buy more ingredients and more products for her store. The loan will benefit her business.

There are four other members of the loan group. M., age 22, owns a small grocery store front of his house. He is looking a loan to buy more cooked ingredients for his store. N., age 47, owns a shop where she sells breakfast food. She is taking a loan to renovate her shop. P., age 29, is a motor taxi driver who is applying for a loan to buy a new motor because his old motor is broken very often. P., age 31, is a furniture maker who is looking for a loan to buy a electric machine for his home.

Mr. M. and Mr. P. were not available when the photograph was taken so their wives appear in the photograph instead.
