Seom, 49, is married and resides with her husband and six children in Kandal Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in the agricultural business for over ten years. They have extensive experience and are successful in their career. They are involved in growing agricultural crops and earn approximately USD 9 per day.
Due to lack of funds, Seom is requesting for a loan of USD 1000 to purchase rice seeds, fertilizer and fuel to use in her farming work. In the future, she would like to rebuild her present house to make it bigger and stronger to provide convenient living conditions for the family.
