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

A loan helped to buy construction supplies for the renovation of her old house.

Sal's story

Sal is age 47 and has three children. She lives with her children in the area of Angkor Borei district, Takeo province. She has an occupation as a farmer and owns and manages a few hectares of farmland. She grows and plants agricultural produce and sells it to the local market in each harvesting season. Her children assist her greatly with the agriculture activities.

Rice is the staple food of Cambodians and is their most important field crop. It is mainly produced during the wet season, but dry season harvests are an increasing component. Yield has increased from year to year, thanks to access to better fertilizers and other inputs.

At the moment, Sal's house is under construction and she needs more materials to finish. Due to a shortage of money she requested a loan, which she will use to buy construction supplies for the renovation of her old house. With the loan, she can purchase construction supplies such as bricks and cement to cover the lack of a roof, build a new toilet and pay for labor costs.

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. She aims to purchase more land for agriculture purposes and open a small grocery store to earn additional income.
