Pheap is 31 years old. She is the mother of two children and resides with her husband in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia.
She has been involved in an agricultural business for more than ten years, has extensive experience and is successful in her career. She is involved in growing rice and fattening up pigs. Approximately, she earns about $20 per day. Her husband runs a grinding rice service business and earns about $10 per day.
In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Pheap is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase fertilizer to use in her rice cultivation. By doing so, rice would grow better and provide good harvest. In the future, she would like to run a rice mill and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees.
