Sar is 59 years old and is married with four children. She lives with her family in Kampong Chhnang province.
Sar dedicates herself to the operation of her rice farming business. She has been in this business for nearly 33 years. She normally grows her rice crops twice a year because she owns a few plots of farmland, which are located not too far from the province's water supplies. Sar has a husband, a supportive man, who helps manage the maintenance of the rice field. Due to her need of sufficient capital to improve this business, Sar is now looking for a loan of USD $600 to purchase rice seeds and rent a tractor to till her land.
In the future, Sar would like to save some of her income to renovate her house and create a reserve for family emergencies.
