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


A loan helped to pay for landfill around her house.


Samot's story

Samot is 45 and lives with her family in the area of Angkor Borei district, Takeo province.

She is a construction worker and she's a very industrious person. She can earn approximately USD 4 per day, which is s not enough to cover her family's daily needs. She has to work for more than 8 hours every day to earn more additional income.

Because her finances are short, she has applied for a loan of KHR 8,000,000 to pay for putting landfill around her house. With this loan, she can pay for the landfill and can provide her family members with a good environment, fresh air, protecting them from illness, and enabling them to enjoy better living conditions.

She sends thanks to all lenders who have contributed their funds to help poor people like her.
