Pav is 49 years of age and she continuously operates a farming business as a source of income. She primarily grows rice and cassavas on her own land in the Prey Chhor district of Kampong Cham province. This business is a great help in supporting her three children. Her husband and children also help her in developing her business.
Pav would like to acquire a loan of 1,200 US dollars as additional working capital; it will be used to hire local laborers to weed her cassava plantation. She will also use a portion of the loan to buy fishing materials such as a boat, net, and other traps.
She hopes that this time she could be able to enlarge her profit for the overall welfare of her family.
