Mey is 30 years old. She is married and has been blessed with two school-age children. She and her husband raise the family in a small village in the Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province.
Mey plants rice crops for both sustenance and sale; whereas her husband is dedicated to the animal trading business. He buys and sells animals in the marketplace of the province. They aim to make a good income and to be able to educate their children.
Mey said that she wants her two to become professional nurses, so that they can earn a good standard of living from this career and help a lot of people across the country.
Due to financial constraints, Mey is asking for a loan of KHR 2,500,000 to enable her husband to purchase cows for trading. This loan will play an important role in enabling her family to develop their business as well as improving their living conditions.
