A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fertilizer and land to grow more rice.


Sin's story

Sin S., 43, is married and lives with four of her children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She is a garment factory worker who typically makes about US$2.50 each day and is further supported by three of her children who also work in the garment factory. Her husband, Chhen Oeun, is a rice farmer and he makes around US$2 each day. The weather conditions have been difficult for farming in Cambodia this past year and inflation has also been out of control. These factors have played into a difficult economic year for many Cambodians, Sin S. included. In light of these economic difficulties, she is asking for a loan of US$1,000 to purchase fertilizer and land for her husband to grow more rice. She is confident that this loan will allow her to increase her daily income and to better support her family. (Sin S. was not available so one of her daughters is pictured instead.)
