Mrs. Pov K. and her husband, Mr. Seng Suon, are farmers in Roka Village in Kandal Province. They grow two crops a year on their land. During the rainy season, they grow rice, and in the dry season they grow vegetables. Mrs. Pov K.’s plantation faces a problem because she does not have enough money to buy fertilizer for her field and rice seeds to plant. That is why she is applying for this loan. Last year, Mrs. Pov K. obtained a loan from Acleda Bank to buy fertilizer and hire a laborer with cows to plow her rice field. She has paid it back fully.
