Samean's story

Samean is an experienced farmer and married man. He has one grown child. Samean manages a business planting and harvesting rice twice a year on his own land, which is located in Prey Veng province. His wife and child assist him greatly in his everyday farming work.

Samean owns a few plots of land, where he manages to cultivate rice and other seasonal crops to earn a living. He has been involved in this occupation for more than three years and can earn a net income of only $6 per day which will expense and cover the family's costs everyday, such as foods, medicine, clothes and education fees.

To be able to continue his agribusiness in a sustainable way, Samean is asking for a loan of KHR 6,104,000 to buy seeds and fertilizer to apply to his crops. With this loan support, he will have enough money to purchase seeds and fertilizer for his rice farms and be able to increase his productivity.

He expresses his thanks to all lenders for helping him sustain his agribusiness so that his finances are more stable.
