In the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province most of the inhabitants depend on agriculture to earn their livelihoods. The common agricultural businesses are crop farming, animal husbandry, and fishing. Among them, Chuon, age 56, has been working related to the rice-planting business alongside her spouse. With the many experiences she’s gained from this project, Chuon is able to manage her performance well and she could generate a plentiful harvest from her fertile land. Presently, she has been blessed with six children, three of whom are married.

As shown in the photo, Chuon’s house is becoming too old and most of its parts are broken. That leads her family into a hard living situation. Chuon wants to rebuild this house again with her savings, but it won’t be enough for the entire expenses. Therefore, she is asking for this loan to buy construction supplies and hire workers for constructing her house.

She is very happy and appreciates that lenders treat her family in a generous way.
