Mouy, 43, is married and resides with her husband and four children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia.
She and her husband have been involved in potato cultivation for over four years, earning approximately USD 5 per day. Additionally, her husband is a construction foreman. He earns about USD 7 per day. One of her children is a garment worker who earns about USD 2 per day.
Mouy is asking a loan of USD 1,500 pay for the rent of the land where she is planting potatoes. This money would enable her to acquire security with this agricultural business.
In the future, she would like to run an additional business to generate more income to support the family and help her children get bachelor’s degrees.
