A loan of $700 helped to change from wooden stilts to cement or concrete stilts.


Sokhom's story

Sokhom (in the photo) is 32 years old and her husband, Pakdewat, is 41 years old. They live in a village about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1980 and have three children--two sons who are in school and one daughter who is still young.

Sokhom and her husband are fishermen. She sells fish in her local market that she and her husband catch.

Sokhom’s house is on wooden stilts, but the wooden stilts are old and not strong. She decided to apply for a loan of $700 in order to change from wooden stilts to cement or concrete stilts. The cement of concrete stilts should be stronger than wooden stilts.
