Soeun's story

Soeun, aged 36, who is married and lives with his family in the area of Prey Kabbas district, Takeo province. He earns a living working as a police officer and his wife is planting and harvesting rice crops and selling the 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 his best effort, he can earn approximately USD 5 per day to pay for daily meals, clothes, medicine and other necessary things.

At the moment, Soeun's house is under construction and he needs more materials to finish it. Due to a shortage of his money, he requested a loan, which he will use to buy construction supplies for the renovation of his old house. With the loan, he can purchase construction supplies such as bricks and cement to cover the lack of a roof and to pay labor costs. He hopes that through the help of the loan he can provide everyone in his family with a suitable place to live and comfortable living conditions. He aims to purchase more land for agricultural purposes and open a small grocery store to earn additional income. He sends his thanks to all lenders for helping his family.
