Living in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province, Lim is aged 33 and a mother of three children. She is dedicated to the family's farming business, working alongside her spouse on their land. Lim can farm the land twice a year due to the main source of water from a nearby river, which is favorable for growing rice and other seasonal crops. She has no difficulties with her farming because she has been doing it for almost 20 years already.
Lim is requesting a loan of 4,500,000 Cambodian riel (KHR) to buy a cow and for the maintenance of the rice field. With the financial support of the loan, she will invest in her farming business to improve her earnings and better her quality of life. Her dream is to one day expand her business and improve her house.
