Chanthorn's story

Chanthorn, age 49, is married and has six children. She lives with her family, located in the area of Samraong district, in Takeo province. At home, Chanthorn has been operating a small convenience shop, offering many types of products, including grocery items, snack foods, sweets, powders, canned food, noodles, and miscellaneous household things, to local people in her community. She makes a suitable income of 4.00 USD per day, from which she can cover her daily costs. Chanthorn's husband manages a rice farm, raises some poultry, and sells to the local traders for additional income. Processing food crops helps in the durability of food crop products. When food crops have been processed, like through dehydration, micro-organisms become absent thereby preventing spoilage.

At the moment, Chanthorn's 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, such as bricks, 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 have enough funds to pay for labor costs. She can prevent her family from enduring the crisis of climate change and can save some money for use in future needs. She sends her thanks to all lenders for helping poor fellow people like her to improve their families' economic situations.
