Him, at the age of 20, manages a farming business from Baray district, where she permanently lives with her husband. She has been working alongside her husband in this type of business for a few years on their inherited farmland. Him said that, though it's such a hard work for young couple like them, they really enjoy working in this field because it's the sole source of their income. Him has a strong commitment to improve their living standard someday through her effort and patience.
She is requesting a loan in the amount of 700,000 Riel (KHR) to supplement her savings in order to buy a piece of land, on which she plans to build her own house when she can afford to do so later. This is her first step in developing her family living situation to experience a better quality of life in the future.
