Mrs. Sok is 53 years old and lives in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has five lovely children, three of them have already married and live independently, the other two are single. Most rural people have been generating a business such as agriculture and raising livestock. Mrs. Sok and her husband have been running a business as domestic rice farmers. From this, they earn an income on average of $3 USD each day.
This is the rainy season so it is so good for them to plant their rice crop. As she lacks money to start planting, Mrs. Sok would like to borrow some loan funds in order to purchase seeds, fertilizers and other farming materials. She hopes that this loan will make their family meet happiness and gain more profit.
