Sim is 32 years of her age and a loving mother of three school-age children. She, together with her husband, manages a rice farming and hog raising business while they are raising the family. She built a wooden pigpen in her yard for raising her pigs, yet it’s not really a comfortable place for her pigs. She plans to renovate it later when she earns a good income from selling her pigs. Sim has been in the business for almost 13 years. Normally she can generate USD 2.00 per day on average for her daily expenses.
To help in developing her business and make a sustainable income, she is looking for a loan of KHR 1,500,000 to purchase a female cow for breeding purpose. This loan enables her to have enough capital to improve her business. She hopes that she will obtain a good income through her strong commitment and high patience.
