Mrs. Men, 56, is a humble farmer who grows some crops like rice, potatoes and watermelons. She is from the Baray district of Kompong Tom province. She manages this business with a great help from her husband who always assists her in the project. Currently, Mrs. Men has been blessed with eight children: five children are married; two among the three single children continue studying and work in Phnom Penh city. Due to the lack of a vehicle, they have some difficulties in traveling to school and workplaces. To solve the problem, Mrs. Men, a loving mother, is applying for a loan from HKL to purchase a motorcycle for the two children who are in need. In the future, Mrs. Men aims to expand her farmland and grows many kinds of crops, which earns her a good income.
