Hean is 36 years old and blessed with three school-aged children who still need her daily allowances. Hean happily works on her two and half hectares of farmland, growing various kinds of seasonal crops including rice, beans, potatoes, and vegetables. Through her hard work, she is able to make around 26,000 KHR per day to support herself and her children’s education. She has been engaged in this for over 12 years. Her husband is the main supporter in the business.
To maintain a good growth of her crops, she is requesting a loan in the amount of 5,000,000 KHR in order to hire local laborers to transplant rice as well as to work her potato plantation. Hopefully, she can provide a better living for her family in years to come.
