Soklin's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a motorcycle for her family's daily needs.

Soklin's story

Soklin is forty-two years old and married with three children. She works as headman's assistance in her village, and her husband is employed as a construction worker. Both of them are making a net income of $11 per day. They live in Kampong Thom province in Cambodia. Soklin is working together with her husband to improve the family's standard of living. Her children are attending school.

Due to a shortage of capital, Soklin needs a loan to buy a motorcycle for family's daily needs. She hopes that this loan will help to reduce her family's expenses.

In the future she wants to renovate her house and encourage her children to continue studying at university.

Soklin sends thanks to all lenders for their support of her family.
