Yorn has been spending most of her life in rice farming. She is a married woman and mother of three who still live under her care. The other source of revenue in the family comes from her husband’s job as a domestic porter in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham Province. The family is able to make a profit about US $6.25 each day to help support their daily expenses.
Yorn will use the loan to purchase fertilizers and other farm supplies to use on her field.
