Eang is 34 years old and a resident of Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She happily lives there with her spouse and a teenage kid attending a local school. Eang aims to send her child to a college after he graduates from high school. This encourages Eng to work harder for her child’s education.
Eang recently is in the business of rice farming and fishing as the main source of income for the family. Eang has been in this type of business for over 11 years. At present, she would like to borrow some funds to add to her savings to purchase a plot of farmland to increase her land and produce more output. She hopes that her business will grow and thus boost her profit to cope with the needs of her family.
