Sim is a domestic farmer who has been living in Kompong Cham Province. She normally spends most of her time in the farming business. She always uses her fertile farm to grow a few crops and her husband frequently helps in the crop-planting business.
For more profit, Sim catches fish on the lake.
The couple has given birth to three children. One is also employed in the farming business while the other two are still enrolled in school.
Sim will use the loan to hire a plowing machine to plow her farmland and to purchase potato seeds, insecticides and fertilizers for her crops. With the rest, she will purchase some planks to repair her old wall.
