Seang, aged 39, is originally from Kampong Thom province. She is married and has four children. All of them are attending to school.
Her spouse helps her maintain their farm in Rattanakiri province. She plants and harvests rice to sell. She has been in her farming business for almost 13 years and earns about KHR 40,000 per day. Seang would like to improve her farming business and increase her yields, from which she can satisfy her living needs.
Due to insufficient funds, she has borrowed a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to buy a piece of farmland for farming activities. With the loan support, she hopes to build a strong business and expects to have an abundant harvest in this coming season.
