Hello, I’m Socheat. I have two children, one of whom is at school, and one who is still little. I’m a rice farmer, and my husband is a second-hand item collector. My mother is living with me, she helps me to look after the children. In total, we can only afford to spend around $0.68 on each family member per day. We are a member of the Khvav credit union in Takeo province. I’m aiming to start up my chicken farming business, and develop it into a successful micro-enterprise.
My goal is to increase my family’s income so that I can save more money to ensure better support for children’s education, healthcare and food, in order to change our standards of living as a whole.
