A loan of $500 helped to buy recyclable items in bulk.


Heang's story

Heang L. is a housewife living in Kampong Cham. She cares for a household of five including her husband, their two children, and her elderly father. Her husband, Thai Deng, buys recyclable items from people at their home and then sells these to local factories that will put them to use. He has developed this low income business surprisingly well to the point where he can make 5 US$ per day depending on how many items he is able to secure. Their children are all too young to attend school.

She wants to take out a loan specifically to help her husband increase his business by buying a greater quantity of recyclable items. They can stockpile these to sell to support their family in months when his business has not been as profitable as it usually is.
