Hean is 41 years old and married, blessed with seven children. They live happily in a small village of Oddar Meanchey province.
Hean has spent most of her lifetime in rice husbandry to make a livelihood. She pursued her business to provide a good education to all her children. All of them are very grateful to their parents and always help them in managing the maintenance of the rice field, whenever their class schedule permits.
As her rice is growing, Hean needs supplies to spread on it to enable its growth quickly and to protect it from insects. Because of inadequate capital, Hean is requesting a credit through HKL to purchase fertilizer and pesticides for her rice crop.
She hopes to have better yields in the coming season with the help of the loan.
