Moa is 60 years old. She is married, with three children, and lives with some of her three children in the neighborhood of Reussey Keo district, which is a part of Phnom Penh. Moa’s husband passed away a few years ago and shifted responsibilities onto her.
Moa owns and operates a farming business where she particularly grows rice. She also sews pieces of clothes for extra income from her home, generating approximately USD 2.50 per day. One of her daughters does the same sewing business as Moa. She has been working in sewing for more than two years.
With the money from the loan Moa is requesting, she will be able to buy water pumps for carrying water into her crop fields since she experienced inadequate water in the past. She hopes to have a plentiful harvest, which can supply her family for a whole year.
