Saros's story

Aged 50, Saros is a brave person and highly respected in her local area. She is working as farmer with her spouse for more than eight years. Agriculture is the main source of her family income. Properly prepared fields or plantations are the first important things that she needs to do to make the soil fertile and get a high yield for all types of agricultural crops. She needs to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and switch to natural fertilizers instead, because chemical fertilizers are effective in the short term but can make the soil sticky. Water evaporates and the soil quality gradually deteriorates if farmers use it excessively.

Due to insufficient finance, Saros has applied for a loan in the amount of KHR 8,000,000 to dig a pond. Farming that expects rainfall, or so-called sky farming, is not conducive to Saros, whose farmland is far from an irrigation system and will not be able to supply enough water to the crops.

Saros can raise fish in dug ponds, reduce household expenses and have enough water for daily living activities. Her profits enable her to increase her savings and take care of her needs and those of her children. She sends her thanks to all lenders for helping her family.
