Mr. Kang is 42 years old. He cultivates rice crops in a suburban area outside of Phnom Penh city. He lives with his wife, who works in a garment factory, and five children. Mr. Kang is a diligent person. Through his effort, he hopes to support the education of his children because he wants to see them become well-educated and helpful people. Through farming, he usually earns around 2 USD per day for the family’s financial needs. Mr. Kang has applied for a loan of 400 USD to buy cows that can be used to plow his farmland. This loan will help increase the income of the family.
In the future, Mr. Kang expects to grow his farming business more successfully. With the increase in income he will make, he wants to fix his present house and save it for his children’s future.
