Em's story

Em is 42 years old, married, and has four children. She lives with her family in Samraong District, Takeo Province. Em is a farmer who owns a few hectares of land on which she grows various types of crops, including rice and potatoes. She and her husband help one another with earning household income so that they can provide food, medicines, education, and other basic living needs for their family. Her husband helps bring in additional income by working in construction. Every day, her husband works hard on construction sites by looking after the equipment and machines. He also assists the machine operators, carpenters, and other skilled laborers when necessary. Her husband is also responsible for clearing obstacles, removing hazards, and performing site cleanup.

At the moment, her house is under construction, but she needs more materials to finish the work. Due to a shortage of funds, Em is requesting a loan to buy construction supplies for the renovation of her house. With the help of this loan, she will be able to provide her entire family a suitable place to live and comfortable conditions. The loan will give Em enough funds to purchase construction supplies such as bricks, cement, corrugated zinc sheets, and other needed materials, as well as pay for labor costs.

She believes that her hard work and perseverance will help her attain a better standard of living someday.
