San H. has been in the farming business for many years in the province of Kompong Cham. She owns a piece of farmland that she inherited many years ago from her grandparents. She uses this land to grow rice crops, and she gets good results from her planting almost every year. Her husband assists her in the same business. They are blessed with six children, four of whom are single and two are married. Three of her children are working in various occupations.
Soon San H. will plant her rice crop in her dry-season rice field, but she doesn’t have the capital to do it yet. To solve this problem, she would like to request a loan to buy two sacks of fertilizers and seeds for planting.
