Tha is 26 years old and a woman with a school-going child. Tha runs a small business growing rice and cassava crops in her community, which is located in the Baray district of Kampong Thom. She has been doing this for nearly five years.
As her cassava crops are fully grown, Tha will need to hire laborers to help her harvest her cassavas crops, but she has insufficient money. That’s why she is asking for a loan to hire laborers to help her harvest her cassavas crops. She has been with HKL for one loan already and paid successfully. Tha hopes to sell her cassavas in the local markets at a good price. Her goal is to improve her plantation and to support her family.
