Bres, age 28, has owned and managed a rice-farming business for nearly seven years. She is married and has been blessed with two school-age children. She lives with her family in the Baray district of Kompong Tom province. She is happy because she has her husband's help in the maintenance of their rice field. This couple works hard to provide their children with the basic necessities and a good education.
Bres would like to request a loan in the amount of $1,500 to purchase farming supplies to improve the growth of her rice crops. She believes that she could have a plentiful harvest this coming crop season. Bres is strongly committed to providing a good standard of living for her children in the coming years.
