Kampong Speu, Cambodia / Fuel/Firewood

A loan of $700 helped to purchase a bigger trailer for transporting a large amount of firewood to the marketplaces.


Chum's story

Chum is 31 years old and was born in Kompong Speu province. She has a common law relationship with her spouse and has been blessed with one child. She also has a younger sister who lives with her under the same roof. She manages her own farmland on which she usually grows rice in each rainy season to make a livelihood while her husband distributes and trades firewood from his trailer. This direct selling business depends on proper transportation and trailer loads of firewood.

Chum needs a loan to be able to purchase a bigger trailer for transporting a large amount of firewood to the marketplaces. The previous trailer is old and barely suitable to use--that’s why Chum needs to buy a trailer to sustain the business. She hopes the purchase will enable them to make a better income as well as to grow their firewood business.
