Chet, 25, lives with her spouse and three children in her own home in the Batey district of Kompong Cham province. She is a local farmer who grows rice on the existing farmland. She has been in this business for eight years. Her spouse works in the same business and shares responsibility for the family. He also works as a village health worker.
Chet is requesting a loan of US $300 for her husband to purchase medical devices and stocks of medicine for his medical business. This loan will be useful for her family and other villagers who need medical treatment from her husband.
