Sambor's story

Mrs. Sambor S. was born in 1967 and she now lives in Prey Sbov village, Kampong Speu province, Cambodia. She is a farmer who owns a small piece of land to cultivate rice to earn a living. Her husband, Mr. Reach Sangsa, makes fireworks in their village. They have four children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory. The remaining three attend the local school.

Mr. Reach Sangsa's business is going well and he wants to expand it. Mrs. Sambor S. decided to ask for a loan to buy more materials to make fireworks for sale.
