Nan is 39 years old and a married woman who has been residing in Siem Reap province with her spouse and three children. One of her children is now employed in a supermarket in the province, helping Nan with income to contribute to elevate their living standards. Nan has devoted her lifetime to rice farming and hog-raising businesses with the full support of her husband and her teenaged children. She has been doing this for almost 10 years.
Nan would like to make improvements in her farming project and develop her living conditions. Therefore, she has applied for a loan of USD 1,200 to purchase a piece of land, fertilizers for her crops and feed for her pigs. Through this investment, Nan hopes that her standard of living will be better in the near future.
