      Nhoek Sopheap is 33 and lives in the Tboung Khmum Province of Cambodia. He is a farmer, and he has been working on his pepper farm together with his wife to earn additional income since 2007. 

      Because the weather condition these part years has been difficult that is why Mr. Sopheap is asking for a loan of to dig a well and pond as water supply. The rest of the loan is used to purchase fertilizer and insecticide for his pepper farm. He is confident that this loan will allow him to boost his crop yields and increase his family income. 

      Together with local partner Kredit Lendahand will provide a loan that must be repaid in 24 months.
