Ny, 27, is married and resides with her husband, four children and a sister in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in an agricultural business for over five years. She has extensive experience and is successful in her career. She is involved in breeding pigs and producing palm sugar. Her husband helps her run the business. Additionally, he is a palm tree climber who climbs to get palm juice for his wife to produce palm sugar.
In order to improve her palm sugar production to run smoothly, Ny is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase a cart to carry firewood to cook palm juice to produce palm sugar and to purchase a long ladder for her husband to climb palm trees. In the future, she would like to expand her palm sugar production, build a new wooden house and send her children to a good school.
