Chheorn is a sixty-two-year-old man. He is married and lives in Thmei village, a remote area in Kampong Cham province. He has four children – one is married and three are single. He has been farming for more than thirty years with the assistance of his wife and children, growing and harvesting rice and other seasonal crops to sell for a living. Thanks to his hard work, Chheorn has been able to cover his daily costs and continually develop his farming business.
In order to help him sustain his business, Chheorn is seeking a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to buy farm supplies such as fertilizers and seeds, and pay for labor. His plan is to continue growing his farm and provide the best to his family. Chheorn really appreciates all the help lenders have offered to him and his family.
