A loan of $500 helped to repair his house.


Heng's story

Mr. Heng S. is 36 years old and his wife, Mrs. Noem Phany, is 25. They live in a small village across the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers north of Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. They were married in 1998 and have two daughters. The eldest daughter is in school and the other one is still young.



Heng has been a full-time employee in a company in Phnom Penh since 2006. His wife has been a farmer since 1998. She grows many kinds of vegetables in her village, such as cucumbers, lemon grass, and ridye gourds. The couple want to repair and put additions on their house to protect it from rainwater but they don’t have the money they need. So Heng is asking for his first loan of $500 to use for this purpose.
