Kin is 50, married and has five children, three of whom are married and the remaining two are attending school. Kin farms rice and cashews for a living. She has to get up early every day to take care of her rice crop and water her small cashew trees. Her farm is not far, just a 10-minute walk from her home. Kin has been a farmer for more than 30 years and earns well for her family.
Now she is requesting a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to buy small cashew trees for planting and pay for hiring people to prepare the soil. She really hopes and prays that her business will grow and benefit her family. She is very thankful to all lenders for their financial support and promises to repay her loan on the schedule regularly.
