Mr. Chhorn B. lives in the Rotaing Village of Kandal Province, where he works as a farmer. Mr. Chhorn B. is a 54-year-old married man with four children: two of his children are laborers, while the others are enrolled in school. His wife, Mrs. Lon Von (pictured on the left), is a subsistence farmer. Last year, Mr. Chhorn B.’s children contracted typhoid and, as a result, he had to spend $75 to cure their diseases.

Usually, he cultivates his crops twice a year. In the dry season, Mr. Chhorn B. grows vegetables; unfortunately, however, he does not have sufficient funds in order to buy nets to protect his crops from animals that come to eat his vegetables. Thus, Mr. Chhorn B. is requesting a loan to purchase such nets, and any remaining funds would be used to buy fertilizer for his field.
