Kun is 45 years old and married to Sang. They have four children, three of whom are single and live together with their parents. Kun owns a few hectares of land on which she plants and cultivates rice. Kun uses traditional methods she learned from her ancestor to do farming. However, she works hard and obtains a good result from the harvest. Farming is the only source of the family’s income. She has been in the business for almost 22 years.
Kun would like to acquire some funds to purchase cashew nuts to stock so she can resell them to make more profit in the future. Someday, with her determination, Kun hopes to achieve economic stability and ensure a bright future for her children.
