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

A loan helped to buy cement, bricks, zinc sheets, and other materials for the renovation.

Phally's story

Phally, aged 34, owns and operates a small convenience store at home, selling a variety of merchandise such as snack foods, sweets, and noodles to local people in her community. From this business, she is able to generate income in the neighborhood of 10,000 KHR per day to cover her daily costs.

Her husband, who is the main income provider in the family, works in the agricultural industry. Her husband has good experience in agricultural storage. This includes any deposit or holding of farm products, fertilizer, grains, feed, and other related supplies in facilities or containers. Phally and her husband help each other earn household income, so that they are able to provide food, medicine, education, and basic needs for their children.

Due to a lack of funds, she is asking for a loan to buy construction supplies to renovate their home. She has requested a loan for 8,000,000 KHR to buy cement, bricks, zinc sheets (to cover the roof in the rainy climate), and other materials for the renovation. 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.

In the future, Phally aims to expand her grocery store to satisfy her customer’s needs and push her children to continue studying at university. She thanks all lenders who have contributed their funds to help support people in need like her.
