Chhon, age 40, is a farmer with courage living in a small village of Ang Snoul district, a well known agriculture area.
Chhon has been engaged in farming on her inherited land for over 10 years. She is 40 years old, married, and has three teenage children who are currently at school. Her husband shares responsibility for the family by dedicating himself to a construction business to supply income.
As of now, Chhon is asking for a loan of 200 USD to purchase a few sacks of fertilizer to spread on her rice in order to maintain a high production. She hopes that she will see all her children finish their studies at a higher level of education.
