Toem's story

Toem is 44 years old and a father of four children, living in his own home in Pursat province. There he grows rice on about one and a half hectares of farmland, earning a profit of approximately $7.00 per day from his hardships. He is a hardworking and honest man who aims to improve his standard of living. Thanks to the work he does, he is able to pay for some of his expenses and educate his children in school.

Toem is requesting a loan of 1,500 USD in order to build a latrine and water storage. Having a latrine and water storage in the household will increase the value of his home, protect the family from spreading diseases, reduce the time and energy burden of water collection from day to day, and enable household members to engage in other activities, among them productive and income-generating activities. He hopes to have a fruitful harvest to meet the basic needs of his family.
