This is the second time Mrs. Ngi T. has asked for a loan to improve her business. She lives in Preak Run Village in Kandal Province. She is a vegetable farmer who grows cabbage, potatoes and garlic. Her husband, Mr. Chheng Dara, helps his wife with farming in order to improve their living conditions together.
Since Mrs. Ngi T.'s farming is going well, she decided to ask for a loan to buy more vegetable seeds to grow, and she would use the rest of the loan to buy more pesticides to protect the crops from insects. Mrs. Ngi T. has two children, one of whom is employed in a garment factory while the other is attending school. Previously, Mrs. Ngi T. had obtained $150 from AMK to buy pesticides, and she has fully paid it back. Mrs. Ngi T. is busy with her work, so her husband, Mr. Chheng Dara, is shown in the picture instead of her.
