Koemheng's story

Koemheng, age 35, is widowed and has three children who are attending school. She lives with her family in the area of Takeo province. She earns a living by tailoring. She is responsible for constructing, altering, repairing, or modifying garments for customers based on their specifications, needs, and preferences. She takes customers' measurements, assists in fabric selection, and arranges fittings to determine whether additional adjustments are needed. With her hard effort, Koemheng can earn approximately USD 8 per day, which will have to cover expenses for daily meals, clothes, medicine, and for other necessary needs.

Because of a shortage in her finances, she has applied a loan in the amount of USD $2,000 to pay for ground filler to cover the mud around her house. With this loan support, she can pay for the ground filling and provide her family members with a good environment and fresh air, protecting them from illness and creating good living conditions. In the future, she aims to renovate her old house and push her children to continue studying at university. She believes that through her hard work and perseverance she will be able to attain a better standard of living someday.
