Kang is married and has four children, three of whom still depend on her while the other has started a new family. Kang lives with her spouse and three children in her own house located in Kampot province. To bring up her children and provide them with a further education, Kang has devoted herself to a farming business, cultivating around two and a half hectares of farmland on which she primarily grows rice and other seasonal crops. She has been doing this type of business alongside her husband for over 20 years. Some of her children give her help in the business when they are available from their class schedule.
Kang would like to expand her business and increase her household income, however she doesn’t have enough capital to make it possible. In this matter, Kang is applying for a loan in the sum of 2,500,000 KHR to buy land for farming. This purchase will enable her to make her business more viable and better her standard of living. In the future, she aspires to purchase various kinds of farm supplies to increase her farm productivity.
