As a responsible mother, Moun operates a farming business to generate income. She is 29 years old and has two school-aged children, residing with her family in Baray district of Kompong Tom province. The farming business is the main source of the family’s income, which she uses for her daily food and allowances for her children.
Moun aims to improve her farming business, make it more profitable, and reduce some unnecessary costs incurred in her business. Consequently, she is requesting a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to purchase two cows for farming purposes. She believes that the loan will help her to increase her income if she strives to work harder. She wants to use the generated income for the future expansion of her business and for her children’s education.
