Chan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy construction supplies for the renovation of his house.

Chan's story

Chan is 33 years old, married, and has two children. He lives with his family in the Kien Svay district of Kandal province. Chan is a farmer who owns approximately one hectare of farmland, on which he grows various kinds of vegetables. To supplement the income from the farm, he raises some poultry for fattening and sells to local butchers. He is able to help his wife earn household income, so that they are able to provide food, medicines, education, and basic living needs for their children.

Because of a shortage of his money, he is asking for a loan to buy construction supplies for the renovation of his house. He hopes that, through the help of the loan, he can provide everyone in his family with a suitable place to live and comfortable living conditions. He sends thanks to all lenders for helping poor fellow people like him to improve his family's economic situation.
