A loan of $500 helped to purchase watermelon seeds and fertilizer.


Som's story

Mrs. Som T. is a 38 year old garment worker who lives in Phnom Penh. Som T. is married with two teenage children, while her husband, Say Chea, aged 38, is a local ox trader. He also buys oxen at reasonable prices from the rural people and fattens them for a while before selling for a profit. Currently, this couple owns a plot of land which they use for farming work. Som T. hopes to generate extra income by borrowing a loan to purchase watermelon seeds, and fertilizer, to grow on her farmland. Note: Som T. was not available for photographing, so her husband is pictured instead.
