Svay's story

Svay K. is 59 years old and a resident of Pursat Province, where she has owned a plot of land since 1979. She grows rice crops, which she plants twice a year. She is widowed and the mother of five children; three are married and live away from the family home, and two are single and attend school.

Svay K. is a hard-working woman who never wastes time in order to earn money to ensure that both of her children that are still in school receive a higher education. To help with the hard physical labor involved in her farming work, she is applying for her second loan, which she will use to buy a water buffalo for ploughing the fields. In the future she proposes to raise water buffalo for babies.
