Kuch is a farmer from Kompong Speu province. He is 34 years old and a father of two school-aged children. He owns a few plots of farmland where he and his spouse grow and harvest rice for their livelihood. Kuch has been engaged in farming for more than 10 years.
To help him continue operations of his business, he is requesting a USD $400 loan to buy a cow for the maintenance of his rice paddy. He expects a boost in his income through a reduction in operating costs. Someday, Kuch hopes to continuously improve his harvest and save for his family's future expenses.
