There are many Cambodians who make a living as rice cultivators; one of them is Mrs. Nuon, who has been working in this sector since 2000. She and her husband grow rice on their own farmland that they inherited from their grandparents. From this business they generate an income of around US $3 per day. This humble couple have four children, one of whom is working in manufacturing as a sewing worker and earns a fixed salary every month.
Mrs. Nuon would like to apply for a loan to buy two cows to support her in the field.
