Chhun was taken a photograph with her husband at her house, which is located in Prey Chor district. She is 42 years old and has 5 children, one of whom is already married and lives away from home. Chhun generates her income by growing annual rice crops on her inherited farmland. However, the output is rarely enough to satisfy the whole family. To help the difficult situation, two of her daughters decided to work as sewing staff in a garment factory in Phnom Penh and send a part of their monthly salary home to help their parents.
In the coming months, one of Chhun’s children is going to get married, thus, Chhun will take responsibilities to manage the party. Consequently, Chhun would like to ask for some funds to prepare the wedding party of her child, which will come soon. She is very happy and grateful to all lenders who kindly help her family.
