Ut is a 54-year-old married mother of three and a resident of Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham, in Cambodia. She is a dedicated farmer who works hard to support her family. She names her husband and children as the main people in her life giving her a helping hand to work out their plans. Ut has farmed her own pieces of land for more than 30 years. Through her sacrifice and perseverance, she aims to improve her business and better her living conditions.
She is seeking a loan to purchase a motorcycle, which her employed children will use to commute to work. This will reduce their monthly travelling expenses and enable them to get to work on time. A small portion of the loan will also help her to cover the operating costs of farming. Her plan is to keep improving her business and renovate her house in the future.
