Yom, 47, is married and resides with her husband and four children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in agricultural business for over ten years and are successful in their career. They are involved in growing rice and fattening up cattle. Additionally, her husband runs the business of buying cattle to use in farming work as well as to resell for a profitable price to generate more income to support the family. Two of her children are employed as motorbike mechanics.
In order to improve her family livelihood, Yom is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to purchase more cattle to resell to make more profit for supporting the family. In the future, she would like to expand her agricultural business and support her children to study until they get a Bachelor's degree. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it much stronger to provide better living conditions for the family.
