A loan helped to pay for landfill around her house.

Sokhan's story

Sokhan is a 39-year-old married woman with two children living in Angkor Chey District, Kampot Province. She is a conscientious rice farmer who owns and manages about 2 hectares of farmland. She works with her spouse, earning about $6 a day. She has been doing this for almost 15 years. Rice farming provides all of her family’s income.

She aspires to achieve financial stability and provide her children with comfortable living conditions. With her many years of experience, Sokhan is an expert in taking care of her rice crops and ensuring abundant harvests each year, except for the year of a big flood. However, the way she does farming is still based on the traditional method.

Because of the shortage of her finances, she has applied for a loan of $2,000 to pay for landfill around her house. With this loan, she can pay for landfill and can provide her family members with a good environment and fresh air, and can protect them from illness. She will also be able to cover the mud around her house.

When the process of landfilling is finished, Sokhan plans to grow vegetables and raise some poultry to collect and sell in the local market. She plans to save her generated income gradually for her business expansion as well as for her children’s education.
