Mrs. Ter’s priority in life is to uplift her family’s living conditions. She is a single parent and has two single children who live together with her in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province.
She has to be involved in many businesses in order to maintain better living conditions and to pay for her daily expenses. There are three businesses she has been doing, such as cultivating rice crops, selling a kind of Khmer cake and trading rice from place to place. She is able to generate in the neighborhood of $4.00 from her farming business as well as the other two businesses. Moreover, her daughter helps to create income for the family by selling fruit from a rented booth in a local market of the province.
Mrs. Ter would like to borrow this loan amount to buy stock of fruits and to purchase a used motorcycle for her daughter’s business.
