Hoeun is just 24 years old. He has a common law relationship with his spouse, who works in the same type of business, cultivating rice for their livelihoods. This couple does not yet have a child but they wish to have one soon. Hoeun owns around 3 hectares of farmland, which provides a suitable output for the family. On the other hand, he doesn’t possess any animals for the maintenance of the rice field. As in the previous time, he usually borrows other villager’s animals or a tractor to work on his farm, and this has the effect of making much expense. To solve this problem, Hoeun decided to take out a loan from HKL to purchase two cows for farming purposes. This loan will help him to continually develop his business and he hopes to pursue a better standard of living in the years to come.
