Seun is a 42-year-old married woman and a mother of eight children. She lives with her family in the Kampong Chhnang province. Seun works as a rice farmer and uses her income to pay for daily food and allowances for her school-age children. Some of her children help her to manage her business every rainy season.
Seun is requesting a 3,000,000 KHR loan to buy a rice-husking machine. This machine will really help her to more effectively run her business and she will be able to provide this service to local farmers to earn extra income. In the future, Seun wants to further develop her business to increase her family's standard of living and she would like to keep generating a good income.
