Tin is 32 years old and married with two children. She owns around a four-hectare farmland where she grows rice, cassava, beans, and vegetables that she can sell in her community or at the market. She and her spouse have been doing this for years and earn a net profit of KHR 13,000 per each a day to provide basic needs for their family members.
Tin needs a loan to pay laborers for weed removal and buy farming materials to apply on her cassava fields. She has been with HKL for two loan cycles and she has successfully paid off her loans. The profits from her harvest, will be used to support her family and educate her children.
