Mrs. Sina N. is 45 years old and lives in Rung village in Takeo province. She is a farmer who owns a 2.5-hectare field to cultivate rice. To support her crop cultivation, she owns a plowing machine. Her husband, Mr. Tha Parnh, owns a rice mill and uses it to earn a small income to support his family. The couple has four children, two of whom are seamstresses in a garment factory, one of whom is a construction worker, while the youngest attends the public school.
In order to increase their income and improve their standard of living, Mrs. Sina N. is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 KHR from Kiva partner, AMK. She will use this loan to buy a cow for breeding and, with the rest of the loan, repair her plowing machine.
