Ou S. has been in the farming business since she was a single woman. Presently, she and her family live together in a small house in Kompong Tom province. She and her husband have been the local farmers since 1980. This couple has given birth to three children: two of the children are married and one is single.
Ou S. and her husband grow rice and peanuts on their own farmland. They always get a great result from their planting. This is the second step for this couple to plant peanuts, but they don’t have enough money to support their farming yet. So Ou S. is seeking a loan to purchase a pumping machine and seeds for planting.
