Khim is 35 years old and married with three children. They are all residing in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She is a local rice farmer who owns and manages a few hectares of land for rice cultivation, while her husband works in the construction field to provide a daily income for the family. Khim has been working in this type of business for almost 22 years.
She would like to borrow some funds from HKL to purchase construction supplies to support her husband’s business. This loan will enable her husband to provide his building services and increase their household income. For the future, Khim hopes to enlarge her farmland and continually expand her business for a good standard of living.
