Yoeun, 31, is one of the residents from Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She owns and operates a rice farming business, from which she is able to generate her daily income of about USD 5.00 per day. She and her spouse work hard to give their family a better quality of life. She mainly spends her income for daily foods and pays for her children’s allowances. She is responsible for two single children attending school.
In this regard, Yoeun plans to improve her business and make it sustainable with her daily income. Because of financial shortages, she would like to apply for a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to purchase a cow for her farm. She believes that this loan will help her manage her business well and cut down some expenses. In the future, she hopes to continually support her children until they finish at least high school level.
