Pech, age 32, is a humble farmer who resides with his family in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. He owns a few inherited farmlands, on which he grows rice, potatoes, and various kinds of crops, including vegetables for sale. He is married to his wife, a good business partner, and a mother of a child who is studying in the province. Pech plans to send his child to a good university in Phnom Penh after he finishes high school. So, he works hard in the business to save some money for this.
Pech would like to acquire a loan of KHR 700,000. He will use the loan to hire laborers to till and prepare the land for planting potatoes. Pech hopes that his dreams will be attained in order to sustain his family's needs and educate all of his children.
