With a loan of 4.400 euro Sim will be able to grow more rice and increase her income.
Sim (see picture), is 35 and lives with her husband and two children in the village in Kampong Cham province of Cambodia. Since 2015, she and her husband are farmers and have been operating in the rice farm to earn income for support the living.
In order to increase her crop yields, she is now asking for a loan to cultivating rice in this dry season. She thinks this cultivation will help her to increase her profits and as well as her family living standard.
Local partner Kredit will provide this loan.
