A loan of $1,250 helped a member to repair her old house.


Ruos' Group's story

This small loan is being requested by five borrowers, all of whom live in Domnak Ompel Commune in Phom Penh City. The group leader, Mrs. S., 28, has been a local cultivator for a long time. She now grows rice and vegetables, as well as raising pigs from home for a daily income. She is married with one child who attends school, whilst her husband works as a staff member for a company.

S.'s house is old; that is why S. is taking a loan for repairing her house. The loan will provide the family with a better standard of living.

The other borrowers in the loan group are as follows:

K., 44, who raises poultry for sale and is looking for a loan to buy chicks to raise;

C., 40, who sells Khmer noodles in the neighborhood and is asking for a loan to buy necessary ingredients for her business;

C., 41, who is a rice farmer and is applying for a loan to buy a motorcycle for her family's transportation; and

K., 35, who is a motorcycle taxi driver. He is asking for a loan to increase his wife's capital for growing mushrooms.

In this group: Ruos, Nach, Sean, Im, Chhoun
