Roeurn, 46, is married and resides with her husband and four children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in growing agricultural crops for over twenty years, have an extensive experience, and are successful in their career. They are involved in growing rice and fattening up cattle. Approximately, they earn USD 3 per day. Three of her children are employed in a factory. They earn about USD 10 per day.
Due to the difficulty in her farming work, Roeurn is requesting a loan of USD 500 to purchase a pump to pump the water into her rice field. This purchase would help her provide enough water for her plants and get a higher yield. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children get Bachelor’s degrees.
