      Mr. KHUCH Chamreun is married and lives with his wife in Kampong Cham province. He has been working as a farmer for about 10 years to earn a living. He grows cassava, beans, and rice on 10 hectares of farmland to earn a profit. He also works as a dealer, purchasing cassava and beans to resell at Vietnam border. His wife, SREY, is a professional tailor and opens a tailoring shop from home. 

      Mr. KHUCH is now requesting for a loan to hire 25 hectares of farmland to grow cassava. This is a big investment and he strongly believes that the cassava plantation will bring more income to help support the family.
