A loan of $500 helped to buy buffalo to plow her rice field.

Yoeurn's story

Mrs. Yoeurn P. sells Khmer noodles in Roka Tong Village in Kampong Chhnang Province. Her husband, Mr. Him Nao (pictured, on the right), is a rice farmer and sells firewood. They have eight children, one of whom also sells firewood and another who helps in the rice field. Four are attending the local school while the remaining two are too young to work or study.

Usually Mr. Him Nao hires a laborer with cows to plow his rice plantation, but now he would like to start working the field himself, which is more economically viable. Thus, Him and Yoeurn decided to apply for a loan to buy buffaloes to use as draft animals.
