Chhom, aged 25, is a diligent farmer living in the Prey Chor District, Kampong Cham Province. He has been working on one and a half hectares of farmland to generate his family's main income. His wife always works alongside him in the field to grow healthier rice crops and maintain a high production each harvest season. To supplement to his income, Chhom is involved in a recycling business. He buys and sells recycled materials to a local industry.
In order to sustain his business and to earn a consistent income to satisfy their living needs, Chhom is asking for a loan of 1,000,000 KHR to purchase recycled materials. Chhom would like to ensure the proper growth of his businesses to be able to secure the welfare of his family. He hopes that someday he will become financially stable so that his child can have more education.
