A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seeds, fertilizer and pesticide to maintain her rice farm.


Suon's story

Suon (pictured) and her husband, Pheap, are rice farmers. In addition, Suon is also a weaver and her husband has a business of buying, raising, and selling cows. They live in a village across the Mekong River, about 15 kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have four children - one son and three daughters.

Suon had requested and used a previous loan to purchase an irrigation machine to spray her farm.

She is now applying for another loan in the amount of $1,500 to assist in her farming, by buying seeds, fertilizer and pesticide.
