Chab resides in a peaceful village in Prey Chor district with her spouse and four single children who are currently still dependant and in need of daily allowances from her. Chab is 37 years old and a diligent farmer who operates a rice farming business on inherited farmland. Her spouse works in the construction industry to elevate their living standard and support their children’s education. Chab aims to improve her income by devoting herself to a wholesale business. She wants to buy custard fruits (a kind of tropical fruit) in bulk from local people and bring them as a trade price to her fruit venders.
To make her plans possible, Chab would like to acquire a loan of 450 USD to invest in the purchase of custard fruits. With this amount, she can make a deposit with the owner of the custard fruit plantation and complete the payment after she sells out of her fruit. She hopes that she will be able to make a better income through this investment. This will be her sixth loan and she hopes that it will be approved to help her in her new business adventure.
