Touch is 50 years old and lives with her spouse and children in Prey Chor District, Kompong Cham Province.
Touch is a farmer who owns and manages a few plots of rice farms. She has been in this business for more than 30 years, earning an appropriate income to nourish her family. Touch wants to help her family to increase its income and experience a better quality of life.
In order to go ahead in her business, Touch would like to have financial support from Kiva and HKL to pay for labor costs incurred in harvesting her rice crops. She will use the remaining funds to purchase grocery items for selling in order to boost her profit.
In the future, Touch wishes to renovate and decorate her house, so that she can provide a comfortable living to the whole family.
