A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 3 water buffalo.


Sam's story

Sam S., 42, is a villager from Pursat province, where he cultivates rice to earn a living. He puts in two rice crops per year on farmland inherited from his grandparents. Besides his farming business, he also has a job as a requirement worker. His wife works with him in the field as well as raising animals for sale. The family lives with one teenage child who is a student in the local public school.

Because farming is the family's most important source of income, they are looking for a loan in order to buy 3 water buffalo. This will help with the hard physical labor of plowing the fields and they can make additional income by hiring out to other farmers.
