Noeu, 45 years old, lives with her spouse and two children in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She is very industrious and has a strong commitment to improving her farming business as it’s her sole source of income. Noeu has been farming for over 12 years. Her spouse, who also farms, raises more profit by climbing palm trees for juice, which is sold in their neighborhood.
For the overall welfare of the family, Noeu is applying for a loan through HKL to purchase rice to store for food. She will use the remaining funds to buy a bamboo ladder for her husband to use to climb palm trees. Noeu dreams of having a suitable house roofed with tiles.
