Ngeb is a 56-year-old, married woman, who has been blessed with four children. Three of them are employed in the garment sector to financially support the family.
Since Ngeb was young, her parents taught her all about farm work and, as a result, she is in the business of growing rice and raising pigs to make a livelihood. Her products are harvested and sold into the local markets of her region, in Kampong Thom province. Through her effort, she is able to earn a net profit of USD 4.50 per day, which usually goes for food and other costs of commodities.
Ngeb is currently seeking the support of a loan to purchase a motorcycle, to help her employed children in their transportation needs. Having their own motorcycle will allow them to minimize the costs of taking a motorcycle service.
For her future plan, Ngeb aims to make her business grow and to expand her rice crop, so that she has enough space to allow a better income for her family to enjoy.
