Pat's story

Mr. Pat K., age 36, and his wife, Mrs. Horm Vat, age 37 (pictured) have a furniture-making business. In addition to assisting her husband in his business, Mrs. Horm Vat works as a local farmer. Mr. Pat Pheng makes his products from wood and rattan, which he purchases from middlemen at a reasonable cost. His finished products are primarily such items as beds and cupboards.

His business is thriving because he sells his items to his customers at a reasonable price. In order to better satisfy current demand, Mr. Pat K. seeks a loan to purchase wood in order to build rattan cupboards for sale.

Mr. Pat K. and his wife are residents of Kompong Tom Province, Cambodia. They have three school-aged children who help their parents make furniture when they have time available from studying.
