Bun is 48 years old. She is married and blessed with two children. She and her husband help each other to raise their family in a peaceful village of Kampong Chhnang province.
They primarily plant and harvest rice both for sale and for their sustenance. Rice farming is the sole source of their income, which goes for food, commodity costs, and other expenditures.
She has been doing this type of business for 22 years. She aims to become financially stable, so she and her family might experience a better life someday.
Due to financial constraints, Bun is asking for a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to buy fertilizers and to pay the labor costs incurred in transplanting rice. She believes that this loan will allow her to work out her plans towards achieving her goal.
