Yun is 40 years old and a farmer living in Baray district with her family: her husband and four children who are studying in a local school. Yun typically earns around 10,800 KHR per day and another income is generated by her husband. Presently, some of her children help her as her motivation in her farming business when they have no schedule at school. Yun has been planting and harvesting rice and other seasonal crops to sell for over 20 years.
Yun inspires to increase her yields and better her living standard, so she is borrowing a loan of 1,500,000 KHR to hire laborers planting rice crops. With the help of the loan and a suitable manner she applied to her crops, she is confident she can have a satisfactory yield. She will save her profit for her children’s future education and emergencies of the family.
