A loan of $525 helped to purchase nets in order to protect his crops from animals, and to stock up on fertilizer for his field with any remaining loan proceeds.

Chhorn's story

Mr. Chhorn B. lives in the Rotaing Village of Kandal Province, where he works as a farmer. Mr. Chhorn B. is a 54-year-old married man with four children: two of his children are laborers, while the others are enrolled in school. His wife, Mrs. Lon Von (pictured on the left), is a subsistence farmer. Last year, Mr. Chhorn B.’s children contracted typhoid and, as a result, he had to spend $75 to cure their diseases.

Usually, he cultivates his crops twice a year. In the dry season, Mr. Chhorn B. grows vegetables; unfortunately, however, he does not have sufficient funds in order to buy nets to protect his crops from animals that come to eat his vegetables. Thus, Mr. Chhorn B. is requesting a loan to purchase such nets, and any remaining funds would be used to buy fertilizer for his field.
