Sophal is a 40-year-old widowed mother living under a thatched roof house with four children.

She has overcome the family’s financial hardships as a single mother through rice cultivation on one hectare of farmland. She is able to earn up to 20,800 KHR per day from the business, which she has been in for 22 years.

The main challenge for Sophal is the flood which has lowered her crop production. To overcome this challenge, she is applying for a new loan. She is going to spend her entire loan amount on purchasing potash for her rice. She hopes that this purchase will allow her to recover her losses and boost her crop output so that she can gain triple the income.
