Vet's story

Vet, age 33, is married and has two children who're attending school. She lives with her family in the area of Kiri Vong district, Takeo province. She earns a living by planting and harvesting rice crops and selling her harvest to the local markets. Agriculture remains the most important sector of the Cambodian economy in terms of its share of the gross domestic product (GDP), and it employs the vast majority of the workforce. Rice is Cambodia's major crop, its principal food, and, in times of peace, its most important export commodity. With her best effort, she can earn approximately USD 5 per day to pay for daily meals, clothes , medicine and for her children's education fees. Her husband helps to earn additional income by working as paid laborer at a car garage.

Currently, her house is under construction and she needs more materials to have it finished. Due to a shortage of money, she is asking for a loan for construction supplies such as brick, cement and zinc to renovate her old 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 and can protect her members from the crisis of climate change. She sends thanks to all lenders for helping poor fellow people like her to improve their family economy.
