How are you? You can call me Sokha. I’m 18 years old and live with my single mum and my grandfather, who are both getting old. I have 2 orphaned nephews who are currently studying at school. My sister and I both work in the cassava fields as labourers, and together we earn our family’s main income. In total, we earn about $34.20 per week which goes directly towards supporting all six of us.
I would like to develop a vegetable farming business, growing it into a successful micro-enterprise. I think that with funding and skills I’ll be able to achieve this. In future I really hope I’ll able to provide better financial support for my nephews’ education, improve the quality of food I supply the family with and gain better access to other important facilities.
