Ouk R., 46, is married and lives with her four children in the Kampong Chhnang Province. She is a farmer who works for less than US$1 each day, while her husband, pictured here, sells traditional medicines making US$4 each day.

The weather conditions have been difficult for farming in Cambodia this past year, and inflation has caused food prices to skyrocket. These factors have resulted in a difficult economic year for many Cambodians, Ouk R. included. In light of these economic difficulties, she is asking for a loan of US$1000 to expand her farmland. In order to increase her profits and possibly raise her standard of living, she would like to purchase more land to produce rice with the loan given to her through CREDIT.
