Hun is from Peareang village, Chaong Maong, Toek Phos, Kampong Chhnang province. He is 40 years old and has three single children who attend school.
To make a living, he devotes himself, together with his wife, to rice farming. He has been in the business for almost 19 years and earns around USD 4.00 per day to use to cover household expenses.
Hun is asking for his first loan of KHR 500,000 to purchase four sacks of fertilizers to sow on his rice farm. And a portion of the loan will be used to buy two piglets to raise for future sale. He plans to use the additional revenue generated to make improvements to his family’s house and living conditions.
