Khiev, 37, is married and lives with her family in a small village of Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She has three children, one of whom still depends on her income while the other two are already married and earning their own living. Khiev and her husband cooperate well in their business and are very passionate about supporting their family and providing a good education for their children. Khiev is engaged in growing seasonal rice crops whereas her husband provides threshing service with a machine that appears in the photo behind Khiev.
She is requesting a loan of 1,250 USD to buy a couple of cows for the maintenance of the rice field. The impact of the financing is that her farming business will be feasible and profitable because she will avoid unnecessary expenses on hiring other villagers’ animals to work on her farm. Her plan for the future is to continue growing her family-owned businesses every day to earn a good income, improve her shelter and provide her family with a comfortable living status.
