Eth Group’s story

Eth is a rice farmer living in a village in Prey Veng province in Cambodia. She is 54 years old and has two children aged 15 and 20 years old. She has been cultivating rice to earn income for her family’s living for over 20 years, while her husband is a farmer as well. This family can makes around 6 USD per day.

Because of weather conditions unfavourable to farming, Eth has formed a group of three members to request a group loan; she will use her portion to purchase natural fertilizer for her rice farm.

Confident that she will earn higher profits, Eth will use her profits to expand her farm, renovate her house and support her children to get higher education.

In this group: Samai, Eth, Te
