      Mrs. Nuth Sothea is married and lives with her husband and two children in Kampong Cham province. She and her husband have three trucks, transporting agriculture products such as cashew nuts, corns, rice, mangos, and cassava depending on the season to resell. They sometime buys and sells fire wood for additional income to support the family. Beside the transportation business, they also own 2 hectares of farmland, growing cassava to support their family.

      Mrs. Nuth is now requesting for a loan to purchase 4 more hectares of farmland to grow cassava. This is a big investment and she strongly believes that the cassava plantation will bring more income to help support the family. Must be repaid in 36 months.
