Ek's story

Ek, age 34, is a humble villager from Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She lives there with her family: her husband and three school-age children. She earns a living through crops, primarily growing and harvesting rice and potatoes for sale. She has been doing this since 2009. Ek’s husband is the main income provider of the family. He buys and collects firewood to stock, and then he transports them to sell in the marketplaces of the province.

As of now, Ek would like to take out a loan in the sum of $1,000 USD to add to her savings to buy two cows, which they will use in transporting the firewood and also for the farming business. She is very happy and grateful for the support of her family’s business. With the help of the loan, Ek believes that she will be able to stabilize their financial income to ensure a good living status for her children.
