She is a local farmer from Prey Chor district. She grows rice crops on her own farm land that she inherited from her grandparents. It is located near the path of the river that provides enough water to cover her corps both in rainy season and dry season. She generates around $2.00 per day from this business.
Yeng would like to request a loan from HKL and Kiva to buy a trailer to connect with her husband’s motorcycle that can be used to provide transportation services in the commune. In particular, he transports rice for local villagers during the harvesting season.
Yeng plans to use her additional income generated from her business to better her living conditions and improve her farming business.
