A loan helped to buy wires for recovering her house.


Sophan's story

Sophan is 40 years old, married, and has one child who is attending school. She and her husband are farmers. Sophan engages in farming and harvesting rice crops with help from her husband and her child. She has worked with this occupation for more than five years.

In the end of harvesting season, the traders always come to Sophan's community and buy rice crops from villagers. She and her husband work very hard to improve her living conditions. In the picture, she takes this photo with her family's members.

Due to the shortage of her finances, Sophan has applied for a loan in the amount of KHR 3,000,000 to buy wires for recovering her house. She hopes that with this loan helping she can protect her family and safeguard from animals that usually eat her plants, such as vegetables and trees.

In the future, Sophan wants to renovate her old house and push her children to continue studying at university. She sends thanks to all lenders who have distributed their funds to help fellow people like her.
