Horm is 47 years old, married, and has five children. She lives with her family in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She has spent most of her lifetime dedicated to crops husbandry.
Horm plants and harvests rice and potatoes for sale because the two crops have a good market. To ensure a high production, her husband offers his full support in this business. Through their patience and sacrifices, they can send all of their children to school.
Horm is requesting a loan for 3,000,000 KHR, which she will use to to pay for labor costs incurred in transplanting her rice crops and taking unwanted plants out of her potato field. She believes that this loan will help her to improve the business. She aims to be a successful entrepreneur in the future and to continue to improve her business to earn and save more income for her future.
