Moeun is a 34-year-old widowed woman from Reussey Keo commune, a suburb area of Phnom Penh where she lives with her three children. Presently, she is a staff member of Bayon television station, and is able to earn an average of $5 per day.
In order to gain more income and to offer her children better living conditions, she sells various products at home, such as sweets, biscuits, snacks, shampoos, canned foods, and groceries. She has requested a loan from HKL and Kiva to purchase a stock of her merchandise.
She hopes that she will be able to sustain and improve her business in the future.
