Chantha's story

Mrs. Chantha K., age 49 (pictured) and her husband, Mr. Ngoun, age 46, have been married since 1979 and have 6 children - 3 sons and 3 daughters. One of the children is married and lives outside the family home, two attend school whilst the other children work in a garment factory. The family lives along National Road Number five about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh City.

Chantha operates a farm, growing rice. Her husband is a fisherman and also assists his wife on the farm. Chantha doesn’t have enough capital to maintain her rice farm; therefore she is requesting a loan of $700 to pay for plowing fees and to purchase fertilizer and pesticide.
