Mrs. Sok, 53, appears in the photo with her daughter at her own house. She is a widow who is now living with four single children in Takhmao town. Most of the income depends on her four children who work in various positions: a fast food seller, a waiter, a construction worker, and a garment factory worker. Mrs. Sok manages all household things at home so that her children have a comfortable life.
Sok is taking out this loan from HKL to purchase a second-hand motorcycle to support her children in travelling to their workplaces. She is very grateful for the loan given to her family.
