Run is a 29-year-old married woman from Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She and her husband help each other grow rice on a small plot of land. However, their land does not produce enough to feed their two children, so she and her spouse, apart from farming activities, are involved in the garment and construction industries to fulfill their daily needs.
Run had had three loans already, which caused positive changes to her family’s economy. To continue improving their family, she is asking for a loan to buy construction equipment to enhance her husband’s quality of performance by having enough tools.
She is happy and thankful for the loan granted to improve her standard of living.
