A loan of $500 helped to buy more bamboo for her husband's business.


Sophat's story

Mrs. Sophat N. was born in 1971 and she now lives in Trapaing Ampil village in Kampong Cham province. She and her husband have three children two of whom are attending the local school while the youngest one is too young to work or study because that child is on the age of a year. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land where she cultivates rice. Her husband, Mr. Vann Sophat, is a palm juice collector who gathers juice to process into palm sugar or wine. In this business, he now faces a problem because he does not have enough bamboo to tie to the palm tree to climb up to gather juice. In order to deal with this problem, Mrs. Sophat N. decided to ask for a loan of $500 to buy more bamboo for her husband's business. Her husband appears on the left of photo.
