Koim, age 39, is very hardworking and has been operating a rice farming business as the family's source of income. Her four children serve as her motivation in pursuing her farming business. She has been in this field for many years and earns around 2.50 USD per day. She has a strong determination to succeed in her business and support her children's education. She wants to help them achieve at least a high school level of education.
Koim has inadequate capital to invest in her farming business, so she is asking for a loan in the amount of 1,500,000 KHR to purchase fertilizers and pay for labor costs incurred in transplanting rice. Koim will be able to ensure a high rice production through her hard work and the help of the loan. She is confident to pay back her loan with her generated income in the coming harvest season.
