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


A loan helped to purchase one more tailoring machine and fabric for her business.


Sophea's story

Sophea is 37 years old and is a married woman with a son. She is in the tailoring business. Her husband works as a carpenter. She has been tailoring clothes for two years.

She will use this loan to purchase one more tailoring machine and fabric for her business. By tailoring clothes she can generate more income to improve her business and change her family's living standard.

She wishes she could expand her business, buy more tailoring machines, renovate her house and send her child to get higher education.

Insufficient capital is her major challenge.
