Regarding the new progress report, we decided to focus on the family of Ms. Sophat and show the improvements in her life.

Mrs Sory Sophat, 53 years old live in Prey Kou village, Damrey Phong commune, Chhloung district, Kratie province, she has 5 children. Sophat is a farmer, growing rice, vegetables, cassava, and raising chickens to help her generate income. She has joined CRDT through community based organization since 2009 as part of the vegetable growing group. In January 2013 Mrs. Sory Sophat was selected to get small grant $400 USD for chicken raising activities. The grant was released in 3 steps, the first step provided her with $120USD for chicken pen construction and she has built chicken pen with 3m x 4m size. During the second step she got $196 USD for buying chick, hens, roosters, and chicken feeds. The third step will be realized as soon as CRDT raises enough funding on GlobalGiving.

Before she had only 2 chickens, and currently she has 9 hens, 3 roosters she now has more than 50 chickens and she has sold 4 chickens and plan to sell more this year. She also still faced some difficulties related to the disease for her chickens raising, and CRDT plans to provide technical training on chicken raising to her.

She said “I am very happy with the chicken raising activity that can complement my other livelihood activities, especially in my cassava plantation areas with these activities supported by my husband too, so it is easy for me to monitor and take care of it. And I would very much like to thank CRDT and Global Giving donors who support funding through CRDT, wish all of you to be lucky and prosperous and wealthy”.
