Im, a 55-year-old single parent, works very hard for a chance to experience a better living standard. She manages a farming business in s small village in the Baray district of Kompong Tom province. Four of her children always help her in the business in order to maintain good crop production and one of her children has an independent life.
Due to the lack of animals to maintain her rice field, Im usually pays to rent a tractor to till her land every season, which affects her cash flow. Therefore, she is requesting a loan of 700 USD to purchase a couple of cows for farming purpose. She hopes for the further development of her farming business in order to experience a measure of prosperity some day.
