Meth is a 35-year-old married woman who has been residing in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. Meth is from a low-income family and she only finished her education at primary school level. She quit studying because she wanted to help her parents in solving financial difficulties of the family.
She started her business as a rice cultivator and has been working in it ever since. She is now married with two school-age children who still depend on her and her spouse.
As of now, Meth would like to take out a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase gasoline and spare parts for the maintenance of her plowing machine. With this help, Meth can use her plowing machine again and it will help as it did in the previous time. She hopes that she will be able to have a plenty of harvest and yield a better income.
