Phalleang, 49, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
She and her husband have been involved in agricultural for over 20 years. They have extensive experience and are successful in their business. They are involved in growing rice and fattening up cattle to use as well as to sell for a profitable price when they gain weight.
Phalleang wants to improve her family’s livelihood and build a fence around her house. With this goal in mind, Phalleang is requesting a loan of USD 600 to purchase more farming land to grow agricultural crops to generate extra income to financially support the family. Moreover, she would like to support her children to study until they get their bachelor's degrees.
