A loan of $500 helped to buy a new horse to replace their old horse and also buy insecticides, fertilizers, and seeds for planting.

Pok's story

Cultivating rice is part of 38-year-old Mrs. Pok's daily routine in Prey Chor district. Rice is an essential product, vital to Cambodian people. She learned to grow it from her grandmother and she is very widely known in this sector since before she was married. Her husband, Mr. So, assists her with the farm work as well as providing horse cart services in the marketplace. They have four children, one of whom is employed as a garment factory worker and has a formal salary to contribute to the family's financial expenses.

Mrs. Pok will be using her loan to help her husband to buy a new horse in place of the old horse which is becoming older and older and cannot support her husband in transportation services well. She will use any remainder of the loan to buy insecticides, fertilizers, and seeds for planting. Mrs. Pok, her husband, and their two young kids appear in the photograph together.
