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

A loan helped to buy a tractor for a rice farm.

Mao's story

Mao is 48 years old and a widower with three children. One of his children attends school. He is a construction worker and can get a profit of only $8 each day. Currently, he's living in Takeo Province of Cambodia. He works very hard to support his children's expenses everyday.

Mao will use this loan to buy a tractor for a rice farm. To work a rice farm is very important for him because he can earn more money for living expenses and other necessities.

In the future, Mao wants to renovate his house and push his children to continue studying at university.

Mao sends thanks to all lenders for their support of his family.
