Sam's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to pay for five hectare of farmland, which she's rented from a local villager.


Sam's story

Sam, 44, is a diligent mother who is in the agricultural business to generate income. She also has her husband who helps to manage all the farming process. However, this couple is able to earn a low income from rice husbandry. At the present she has been blessed with 9 children, 5 of whom are already married and live separately in Prey Chor district. With the funds she has requested from our lenders, Sam intends to pay for five hectare of farmland, which she’s rented from a local villager for the purpose of growing a few kinds of bean crops. This loan will sustain the family business and thereby increase her income. For her business goal, she would like to own a medium-size farmland for her bean crops someday.
