A loan of $600 helped to build a biogas digester.

Sokhom's story

Sokhom, 50, lives in Preah Sdach district, Prey Veng province. He owns a farmland on which he grows rice and sells to the local dealers. Until now, it has almost been thirty years since he has been a farmer. By working very hard, he is able to make approximately USD 5 per day.

Sokhom would like to improve his living standards by having clean energy for household use. Because of the lack of capital, he is asking for a loan to build a biogas digester under the project of NBP (National Biogas Program) in partnering with HKL. After an initial investment in this system, he hopes that he won’t spend much money on fuel and have less smoke from wood or charcoal. Thanks to the green loan program with a special rate offered by HKL, Sokhom’s family can gain access to a clean energy while protecting the environment.
