Mrs. Houn is a humble villager who has been residing in Prey Chor district. She has been involved in 3 businesses: cultivating rice crops, selling fresh fish and raising pigs. Her husband is in the business of trading fish and also helps her to manage all farming work to help her relax from the bustle of her work. This couple is blessed with 3 children, one of whom is already married while the other two are students in a local school.
Recently Mrs. Houn has applied for a loan of $1,000 to buy a hectare of farmland that can be used to grow dry-season rice because it’s located near the path of the river. She appreciates the constant support of her business.
