Here at Eco Tan, our mission is to do good in the world. For the environment, for our skin, for animals and, of course, doing good for others. Sonya is a big believer of reaping what you sow, and her strong Christian faith provides the backbone of her charitable nature.
Our latest charitable cause is sponsoring Samang Chen, a woman from Cambodia. She’s a farmer in the Kratie Province and works hard every day growing cassava – a major source of carbohydrates in Cambodia. Through her hard work and hustling, Samang earns $12 a day which she uses to support her three children. One day, Samang hopes that her business will pay for her children to go to university. Hearing Samang’s story struck a chord with everyone at Eco Tan HQ. We could all relate to being hardworking women who want to support our family.
For this reason, Eco Tan has provided a loan for Samang. With this she will be able to hire a ploughing contractor prepare for the next crop season. This will create a sustainable income for Samang and aid in breaking the cycle of poverty. We are inspired by Samang’s determination and drive, and we hope that our loan is the beginning of a prosperous crop season for her business.
Sonya always says when you raise up a women, you raise up a community.
