Meas is 60 years-old. He is married and is the diligent father of six children. Two of his children are already married while the others are still single. Meas devotes himself to his farming business to provide the entire family. He grows various kinds of crops for sale according to each season, but primarily he plants rice, which is the common crop for daily sustenance of Cambodian people. He has been doing the business for almost 20 years along with his helpful wife.
Meas would like to improve his farm to earn more from it. Therefore he is asking for a loan of USD 1,200 to buy a plowing machine for farm work. He believes that this loan will contribute to further develop his present business and help him manage his work at field sufficiently.
