Kea is 33 years old. She is married and lives with two children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been growing rice for more than ten years, earning approximately $3 daily. Her husband sells charcoal and earns about $7 per day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Kea is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a threshing machine to rent out. This purchase will help her generate more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her farming business and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
