Chhan's story

Chhan depends on subsistence fishing to feed his family, which includes three dependent children. His business is located on the Tonle Sap River. Every day, there are many boats on the river waiting to take their catches to the markets and for processing. The peak season of fishing lasts four months every year, from November to February. Chhan usually earns $5 per day and uses it as revolving capital for bills at home, meals, and school allowances for his children. His wife helps him cover their expenses by working eight hours in a local garment factory.

This couple strives to work and save money to build a suitable house for their children. Due to a lack of funds for construction, Chhan has applied for a loan to buy materials for his house and to hire laborers to perform the construction.

He and his family hope to live in his new house with happiness after its completion. Although this is his first loan through Hattha Kaksekar Limited. Chhan is confident that he can pay back the loan in full over the period stated in his repayment schedule.
