Kean's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase additional fishing equipment.
Kean S. is a 26-year-old village woman who has had a job as a rice farmer in the province of Kompong Cham since she was single. She is earning approximately $1.80 a day to support her family. She has a life partner in her husband, who is a local farmer and fisherman also. The couple has two children who are studying in school. This approaching fishing season, the lakes are full of fish but the family is lacking fishing tools. Therefore, Kean S. is applying for a loan for her husband to purchase additional fishing equipment in order to support his business activities. She proposes to use the remainder of loan to purchase a sack of fertilizer and insecticides for her crop. Kean S. was not available the day of the photo, so her husband is in the photo instead.
