The land in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province is very favorable for growing different types of crops and tropical fruits to supply the entire country. Peov, aged 42, as well as other villagers, are engaged in agricultural businesses, focusing on planting seasonal crops and rice for their sources of income. Peov has been operating her farming business since 2000, with constant help from her spouse and a couple of her children.
Peov has requested a loan of $500 US to plant corn again. This will enable her to buy corn seeds to sow on a few hectares of her farmland. Peov believes that, with her efforts, she will have an abundant harvest in the coming season.
