A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase housing and farming equipment.

Kum's story

Kum P., 40, lives in the Prey Veng province with her husband and eight children. She sells vegetables in the local food market typically earning US$10 per day, while her husband is a farmer earning US$3 each day. Two of their children are also employed, one as a telephone company technician and another as a garment worker. This has been a difficult year for farmers in Cambodia because weather patterns have not been consistent and inflation has been high. Many families are seeking out loans to expand and diversify their sources of income.

Kum P. has asked for a loan of US$1000 to meet some of her families needs and improve her standard of living. She would like to purchase a water pump for her home, gas for the family’s motorbike, and if possible, livestock and/or fertilizer. In the future, she would like to open up a grocery stand in the market. She believes this loan will increase her daily income and help expand her business in the future.
