Pech, aged 43, is a resident of Kompong Cham province, where she and her spouse have been growing crops on their fertile farm for over 20 years.
Together they co-operate well in order to generate an income to cover their daily expenses. They are blessed with four children, two of whom are single and the other two are already married and living in separate houses.
Pech plans to make more revenue by enlarging her plantation and increasing output. Therefore, Pech has decided to apply for a loan through HKL to purchase a plot of farmland from a local villager.
