Yi is a 63-year-old woman and an experienced farmer from Ta Pov village of Baray region. She owns a thatched house, where she lives with her husband and unmarried child. Their three other children have already settled down for marriage. To be able to take care of her family, Yi is engaged in cultivating rice, cassavas and other seasonal crops. Farming is the major source of income for her family. She has been doing farming activities for years with great support from her family members.
In order to keep her agribusiness sustainable, Yi needs a loan of KHR 2,500,000 to buy two cows for the maintenance of the fields. She has never taken a loan from a local financial institution before; this will be her first loan cycle, which will allow her to be able to improve her farming business.
Yi and her family will be thankful to all the lenders for helping them to maintain their agribusiness.
