Chan’s priority in life is to provide a better quality of life for her children, even though she has to work tirelessly in the crops field. Chan is 55 years old, and a single parent of five children – two married children and three single children. Chan grows rice and vegetables for sale each season and also she devotes her spare time to the hog-raising business for additional income. She has been involved in these businesses for many years.
With her desire to improve her businesses and to pursue a higher standard of living, she would like a loan of 1,000,000 KHR to add to her capital to buy chemical fertilizers for her rice crops and to purchase more piglets for raising. She is thankful for the given fund because it is very helpful and makes her businesses more productive. She hopes to earn a higher income and further support her family's needs.
