Min is from Prey Chor District in Kompong Cham Province. He is 41 years old and the father of three children attending school. Rice farming is his main business and the sole source of income for his family. He has been doing farming for many years with the constant support of his wife and teenage children. He typically earns a suitable income of 8,000 KHR per day. Min and his wife aim to improve their farming business and grow various kinds of seasonal crops to yield a better income. He plans to plant beans, followed by rice crops. But due to inadequate capital, he would like to have financial assistance through HKL in the amount of 900 USD to purchase bean seeds, hire laborers to prepare the land, and also pay the operating expenses for growing rice. With the great help of the loans, Min has a strong commitment to make improvements to his current business and improve his living conditions.
