Sin owns a small business selling snacks, groceries, and beverages from her own house, located in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham Province, Cambodia. She is 42 years old and married with three school-aged children who totally depend on her income. Sin also works as a local farmer, and crop husbandry is the main business of the whole family. She grows rice, potatoes, and vegetables based on the season and the market demand.
Sin has applied for a loan through HKL to rent a medium-sized plantation from other villagers to grow potatoes. This loan will enable the improvement of her business. She hopes that she is able to have a good harvest in the coming months.
