Nhors is 51 years old, married, and has four children. The rest of her family is living in a rural village from Kror Kor district of Pursat province. Rice-farming is the main source of income for her family. During the spare time, she and her husband work for others for a fee for extra income. Having been with this business for 15 years, she is able to earn almost 17,000 KHR per day.
Nhors took her first loan with VisonFund two cycles ago. She has succeeded in using the past two loans to timely support her rice-growing business. In order to maintain her production, she is applying for the third-cycle loan in the amount of 2,000,000 KHR in order to buy fertilizer and to pay for transplanting fee plus plowing fee. With a portion of the loan, Nhors will buy a small plot of land in the village. She truly believes that she will receive a good yield and a good plot of land nearby the road, as it is the potential location for running a new business in the future.
