Phalla's story

Living in a thatched house together with seven children, Phalla is married and a 49-year-old mother. Three of her children are still in school and some of her remaining four children are helping the family business while the others are paid workers in Phnom Penh (Capital city of Cambodia). She has been rice cropping on three hectares of farmland and raises three pigs while her husband works elsewhere locally and uses his spare time to help her in the rice field. Having this business for 27 years, she is able to earn about 16,000 Cambodia Riel (KHR) per day. The main challenge for her is the lack of water supply for her rice field. She is a three-time borrower. She has successfully used her past two loans with in supporting her rice farming business. Now, she is taking out a new loan in the amount of 2,500,000 KHR to buy an additional plot of farmland to grow more rice. She expects to gain more yields so as to make more profit and improve living standards for her family.
