Chey is a farmer from Baray district, Kampong Tom province who grows rice. She was born in a low-income family and just finished her education at primary school level due to the financial constraints of the family. Consequently, she started pursuing rice farming to help her parents. Rice farming has been her focused business ever since and up to now. Chey is 50 years old, married, and has five children, two of whom are already married while the other three are still single and have their employment in Phnom Penh.
Chey noticed that she can’t increase her rice production unless she extends her land size gradually. In connection with this, she is asking for a loan in the sums of 2,000,000 KHR to purchase extra farmland. With this purchase, she hopes to have a plentiful harvest each season and thus raise her household income. She thanks all generous lenders for their constant support.
