A loan of $500 helped to buy a water pump for the rice field.


Kon's story

Mrs. Kon N., who lives in An Loung Tnout Village in Kampong Chhnang Province, is a Khmer cake seller while her husband, Mr. Bruk Khorn, is a farmer who owns one hectare of land upon which he cultivates rice. Because his field is far from an irrigation system, Kon is requesting a loan to buy a water pump for the field. She hopes to make the crop more productive, which will help to better support the family.



Kon is 47 years old and the mother of six children, one employed in a garment factory while another four are attending the local school and the youngest is yet too young to begin studying.
