Choeurng is a hard working woman who is engaged in agribusinesses in Kampong Cham province. She grows and harvests rice alongside her husband. Having been in this business for over 30 years, she is able to earn an income of KHR 8,000 per day. She is now 52 years of age and has six children: three married and three single.
To help her further develop her farming business, she is asking for a loan from Kiva lenders to buy farming supplies such as seeds, fertilizer and pesticides. With this loan support and her hard work, she hopes to have a fruitful harvest for the coming season, and improve her family’s income.
