A loan of $375 helped to purchase a new cow for replacing the old one.

Shoy's story

Shoy lives in the Kompong Speu province. To make a living, she has planted crops on her farmland, with her husband for the past twenty years.

They can typically profit about $5 a day and that helps to cover their family’s needs. They are blessed with four children; two are studying and one is a young child who lives under their care. Another is employed as a foreman in the construction field.

This is the rainy season and a good time for the couple to start a new crop, but their cow is too old and it cannot plow any longer. Because of a lack of funds, Shoy and her husband request a loan to purchase a new cow.

Shoy hopes to expand the size of her house and send their children to school through at least high school. Shoy is very happy and thanks the lenders who made her first loan possible.
