Sambok's story

Sambok is a 41-year-old married woman with two children. Her children are attending school in the rural area of her community.

She and her husband are sellers. They have to get up early in the morning and go to the lotus farm to pick the lotus flowers and then sell it to the local market. The net income from the sold flowers is very barely enough to support her family members's expenses. Aside from her hardships, Sambok is able to provide enough food for the household and send her children to school.

Her current house has deteriorated over the years. Sambok is asking for a loan in the amount of KHR 6,000,000 to buy wood for home renovations. She hopes that she will be able to provide a suitable living condition for her family members through the loan support.

Sambok express her thanks to all lenders who have contributed their loan to help poor people like her to improve her living status.
