A loan of $500 helped buy construction materials.


Kan's story

Kan K., age 60, is married and has two children. He lives with his wife and children in Phnom Penh City. To make a living, he rents spare rooms of his house to the other people, earning approximately US $10 per day. This amount of income is the primary source of income of the family. The family is also assisted by the two children: one of them is a grocery seller, and another one works as a soldier to serve the country.

The financial crisis has been difficult for business in Cambodia this past year. This factor has played into a difficult economic year for much of the country, K. included. The country's economic struggles always seem to affect the poor the most. In light of the country's economic difficulties, K. is seeking to increase his income. He is asking for a loan of US $500 to purchase construction materials to build more rent house for his customers. By doing so, he hopes he will be able to generate more income to raise a good standard of living for his family.
