A loan of $2,000 helped to buy solar energy systems to supply energy to the household.

Phan's story

Phan, 43, lives with her husband and four children in a small village of the Moung Ruessei district, in the Battambang province. Until recently, she has worked in agribusinesses, growing rice and cassava, and helping her husband breed fish to ensure the needs of her children, two of whom are enrolling in school. She and her husband learned the two businesses through a project of Cambodia HARVEST, a project supported by Feed the Future, the US government’s global hunger and food security initiative. Phan’s house was chosen to be a training center by Cambodia HARVEST. There, lots of the village's people gathered to join and improve the capacity in their businesses. Working with the project for the past few years, Phan is able to make a net income of $8.00 USD per day by growing seasonal crops and breeding fish.

Phan is applying for a $2,000 USD loan to buy solar energy systems to supply the energy to her household. With the remaining funds, she will buy materials and hire people to construct two bathrooms for her family members as well as trainees of Cambodia HARVEST, who come to join the training course. She hopes that, through the loan, she can provide a comfortable lifestyle to all of her children.
