Khen is 44 years old and has three children, all of whom are married already. She is married to a local farmer who always helps her in her business of cultivating rice and bean crops. Besides rice farming, she devotes herself to raising pigs to supplement her husband’s income. Presently, she lives with her family in Baray district.
Khen is now asking for a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to purchase bean seeds for growing in this coming season. She is hoping that she can get the amount of loan she is requesting in order to earn more profit and improve her living condition. In the future, she believes that she will be able to raise her family out of poverty and pursue a quality of life through her sacrifice, effort, and patience.
