Kang is a responsible mother who aims to uplift her family's standard of living. She is 53 years old, and has five children.
Kang owns a few pieces of land in the Prey Chhor district of Kampong Cham province; she uses it for rice cultivation. She has learned to do this from older people and her parents, and has been this for ages. Her husband always helps her manage this business, and also devotes himself to providing horse-transportation services for more income.
At the moment, she would like to acquire a loan of KHR 6,000,000 to buy a young horse for her husband providing transportation services. And she will also use a portion of the loan to buy a water pump for carrying the water into or out of her field. She believes that through this loan, she will be able to make her family-owned business more achievable and profitable.
