Kun, 32, is married and has three children. He lives with his family in the Ponhea Lueu district of Kandal province. He works very hard in agriculture, farming rice on a small plot of land. The land doesn’t produce enough to feed his family, so he also works in construction sites in order to have additional income. Thanks to his wife who helps him earn income with her tailoring business.
To help him maintain his farming business, Kun is requesting a loan in order to buy farming supplies such as fertilizers and pesticides in order to keep his crop in good condition and to pay for the labor. His business plan is to expand his land and make it more productive, so that he can give his family more financial stability and improve his standard of living.
