      Mrs. Men Solon, 40, is a farmer who lives with her husband and three children in the Tboung Khmum Province of Cambodia. She and her husband have been growing pepper as their main source of income since 2010. In the first year, they grown pepper from 100 to 200 poles and now there are 2500 poles on their farm.
      Since the price of pepper are increase, she is now asking for a loan of 7000USD to purchase farming materials to grow more pepper and the rest of the loan will use to purchase fertilizer for their pepper. She believes this loan will allow her to boost her crop yields and increase her family income.
