Mean, 47, is a widowed mother who is responsible for three children. They are living together in Kompong Cham province. Mean has been managing a farming business for almost 22 years to generate a living and raise her family. However, the income she earns can just meet the needs of their daily food. To better her situation, Mean would like to expand her land size to increase her output as well as her household income. Due to the lack of sufficient funds, she is now asking for a loan from HKL to supplement her savings to buy a piece of farmland. With the leftover amount, she would like to purchase rice seeds, fertilizers and herbicides to sow on her land. She believes that she will be able to reach her goal successfully as she strives to work out her plan with the great and constant help from our lenders. She thanks all of you in advance from the distance.
