Mao, 36, is a diligent mother and a resident of the Prey Chor district, where she owns and manages a rice farming business to earn a living. Her husband is a chef who, along with his team, provides food to large numbers of people attending events like parties, weddings, or funerals. The couple has six children, one of whom is working in a garment factory in Phnom Penh city.
Mao is now asking for a loan amounting to 3,000,000 KHR to pay fees on land that she bought from local villagers. She aims to increase her rice production and profit so that she can provide for her family’s needs.
In the future, Mao hopes to make her business more successful through her effort and commitment.
