A loan of $500 helped build a house for her daughter.

Sava's story

Sava is 50 years old and her husband, Chis, is 56 years old. They live in a suburb of Phnom Penh, about twenty kilometers away. They have six children -- one son and five daughters. Two of their children are married, three are garment workers, and one sells sugarcane juice in the village.

Sava and her husband are rice farmers. In addition, Chis also does construction work when he is free from farming.

Sava’s daughter, who is married, wants to live in a separate home, but she does not have enough money. Hence Sava decided to apply for a loan to help her daughter. Sava is asking for a loan of $500 to build a house for her daughter to live in.
