Dam's story

Dam is from the Baray district in Kompong Tom province. He is 44 years old, married, and has four children, three of whom attend school and need daily support.

Dam earns a living by fishing and providing construction services to people around the province. He is expert in constructing wooden houses rather than brick houses. However, he has self-confidence in building both wooden houses and brick houses. Dam has learned to gradually improve his skills and his business while he is operating it. He has been in the two businesses for the past 11 years. Dam’s wife serves as his motivation in helping him to earn household income. She usually goes fishing with him and is also involved in a farming business.

Due to the age of his house, it is in disrepair and suffers from the weather factor each year. Dam would like to repair it by himself with a few members of his team, yet he doesn’t have enough capital to purchase construction supplies. That is why he is asking for a loan of 1,500 USD to purchase wallboard, floorboards, and tiles for re-covering his roof. With the help of this loan, Dam hopes to have a suitable house in which to live and to provide his family with better living conditions.
