Kim is 55 years of age. He is married with five children, living in the Baray district of Kompong Tom province. Kim grows rice and other seasonal crops as the major source of income for the family. He has been doing this business for almost 20 years. He has enough skills and farm supplies to ensure better crop growth. From this business, he typically generates around 8,000 Cambodian riel (KHR) per day.
Kim is now requesting a loan worth 4,000,000 KHR, which will be used to purchase a piece of farm land to increase his farming productivity. Kim believes that, through the help of the loan and his effort, he will be able to obtain abundant harvests in the coming seasons.
