From Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham, Mrs. Chea, 38 and a mother of two school-aged children, has been involved in a farming business. She grows her rice two times a year because she gets enough water from the nearby river. It doesn’t matter for her to do a lot of work at the field but the problem is that her family doesn’t own any powerful animals for such kind of work. In general, she rents her neighbor’s cows to plow her rice field, and it will cost a lot. So now she would like to seek a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase two cows for working on her farmland. It will help the family reduce some expenses and can increase the productivity.
