A loan of $850 helped to buy two cows to use for plowing the fields.


Huot's story

Huot R., 51, lives in Kompong Tom province, Cambodia where she has owned a plot of land since 1979. She grows rice crops, which she plants twice a year.

She is a good mother of seven childR.: four are single and three are married and live away from home. To help meet a little more of the family's needs, three of her childR. are employed as wood carving sellers. She is married to Sok Phan, age 52, who also sells wood carvings that depend on carving from the forest.

In view of the fact that rice growing is R.'s main source of income to sustain her family’s living conditions, and in order to help her meet the hard physical labor demands of farming work, Huot R. is applying for a loan to buy two cows to use for plowing the fields and also to raise for their offspring.
