A loan of $500 helped to buy a cow for breeding.


Ly's story

In Angkonh village, Takeo province, lives a person named Mr. Ly S., who was born in 1977. He is a farmer who owns a very small piece of land in which to cultivate rice to sell to support his family; moreover, he is also a motorbike broker.

His wife, Mrs. Bach Chea, is a seamstress in a garment factory, where she gets a low salary to support her family. Although they try to work hard, they can make only a little money. So to improve conditions for his family, Mr. Ly S. is asking for a loan to buy a cow for breeding to start a new business.

He is a father of two children, both of whom are too young to work or study. His wife is in the photo with him.
