Huy is a 44-year-old woman who was born on her family farm and to a low-income family. She has learned traditional methods of farming to generate a livelihood from her parents, and she has been doing this type of business for ages. She is married to a local farmer and has given birth to 10 children. It’s quite a big family that affects their living situation and causes Huy to work tirelessly to raise her children accordingly. Despite her difficulties, Huy aims to provide her children with a good education without thinking of her hard work. She is still happy and enjoys doing her business to achieve her goals.
To make improvements to her business, Huy is now taking out her third loan cycle in the sum of KHR 3,500,000 to purchase small potato plants and grow them for future sale. She believes that this loan will enable her to work out her plans, and hopes that she will have a fruitful harvest this coming season.
