Ann's story

Ann, age 35, is married and has two children who are attending school. She lives with her family in the area of the Angkor Borei district, Takeo province. Ann is an experienced farmer, growing and harvesting rice crops and other agricultural produce seasonally. She and her husband help each other to process the food crops to make food available even during the off-season. She also has a method to preserve her rice produce. Rice can be canned or bagged, and livestock feed is bagged after formulation. Infant food is canned. These products can be stored in a warehouse. Her husband also works in a tailoring business, designing clothes for customers to earn additional income. She takes the photo with her lovely child.

At the moment, her house is under construction, and she needs more materials to have it finished. Due to a shortage of her money, she is asking for a loan to buy construction supplies for building her new home. She hopes that, through the help of the loan, she can provide everyone in her family with a suitable place to live and comfortable living conditions. She also can protect her family to escape from the crisis of climate change and can save some money for use with future needs. She sends thanks to all lenders for helping poor fellow people like her to improve her family's economics.
