Pech's story

From the province of Kompong Speu, Mr. Pech, age 51, is married to Mrs. SamAn, age 50. He has five children, four of whom are employed as garment workers. The other one attends school.

Mr. Pech is a farmer. Aside this, he has been earning a living for many years by climbing the palm trees behind his house. He is able to earn a profit of approximately $0.50 each day from his business. He has a life partner in his wife who is a local farmer. Mr. Pech would like to request a loan from HKL and Kiva to add to his current savings to build a new house. His current house is becoming older and older now and it is not comfortable for him and his family to live in. With the rest of the loan, he will buy a new cow to replace the old one.

Mr. Pech really hopes with his additional income to add to his crop-planting business and to enlarge his house. Mr. Sam and his wife appear in the photograph.
