Phea is 24 years old. She is married and lives with her two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than five years, earning approximately $3 daily. Her husband is a rice farmer who earns about $4 each day.
Phea is requesting a loan of $1400 to purchase fertilizer and a water pump to use for farming. This purchase will help her crops to grow well and provide a high yield. In the future, she would like to expand her farmland and send her children to a good school. Moreover, Phea hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
