A loan helped to pay for ground filler to cover the mud around her house.

Sokreth's story

Sokreth, age 37, is married and has three children who are attending school. She lives with her family in the area of Bakan district, Pursat province.

She earns a living by planting and harvesting rice crops and selling her harvest to the local markets. Agriculture remains the most important sector of the Cambodian economy in terms of its share of the gross domestic product (GDP), and it employs the vast majority of the workforce. Rice is Cambodia's major crop, its principal food, and, in times of peace, its most important export commodity. With her best effort, she can earn approximately USD 5 per day to pay for daily meals, clothes, medicine and for her children's educational fees.

Because of a shortage in her finances, she has applied for a loan in the amount of USD 1,300 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, 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.
