Cambodia
Takeo, Cambodia / Farming

A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and a motorbike for her children to commute to school.


Meas's story

Meas R., 50, is married and lives with her eight children in Takeo province. She is a farmer who works for less than US $1 each day, while her husband works in construction making US $5 each day. This family is also supported by three of the children who are garment factory workers.

Weather conditions have been difficult for farming in Cambodia this past year and inflation has caused food prices to skyrocket. These factors have played into a difficult economic year for many Cambodians, Meas R. included. In light of these economic difficulties, she is asking for a loan of US $1,000 to purchase fertilizer and a motorbike for her children to commute to school.
