A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a welding machine to operate a blacksmith business.


Kosal's story

Mr. Kosal V., 39, and his wife, Mrs. Sarim Chok, 35, live along National road number six, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. They were married in 1989 and have four children: three sons and one daughter. Their first son just finished learning how to be a blacksmith and wants to operate his own business. Two of the other three children attend the local school and the youngest one is still at home.

Mrs. Kosal has been a mason since 1986, a skill he learned from his uncle. For two years, Mrs. Sarim has been in the business of renting snooker tables to the villagers so that they can play snooker at her home. She earns about US$4 to $5 per day from her business. The couple lack the required funds to operate a blacksmith business for their son who has just become a blacksmith. Mr. Kosal is requesting a loan of US$1,000 to purchase a welding machine for the blacksmith business.
