Kim Soeurn is 33 years old. She is the mother of two children and resides with her husband in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in rubber and cassava cultivation for more than seven years, earning approximately $30 per day. Due to a lack of funds, Kim Soeurn is requesting a loan of $1000 to pay for hiring farm workers to cultivate her rubber plant and cassava. This money will help her business become more secure. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hope to build a new house as soon as possible.
