Phon is 33 years old and married, with three children, all in different grades in primary school. They also help Phon with his farming activities with their free time from school. Phon has a wife, who works in the same career. Together they have been growing rice for nearly 16 years.
To help further develop his farming productivity, Phon needs working capital to invest in his current business. That’s why he is asking for a loan of KHR 3,000,000 to rent other villagers’ farmland for rice cultivation.
His future plans are to be able to have his own land to grow a better variety and to be able to strengthen the heritage for his children. He thanks lenders for their generosities towards a poor fellow like him.
