Soeurn is a married woman who has been residing in Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. She is responsible for a small young kid who completely depends on her care. Soeurn is involved in agribusiness during the rainy season but she also acts as a chef serving foods for a large group of people, particularly the ones who come for special ceremonies like wedding parties, birthday parties as well as funeral ceremonies. She has her own team to provide this type of service around the province or distant areas outside the province. Another main source of income is from her husband who works at the construction field. He’s a construction foreman who leads a small group of men to perform particular jobs.
Presently, her family is experiencing difficulties in daily activities and businesses due to the lack of a proper vehicle for traveling. For this reason, Soeurn would like to acquire a loan through HKL, a partner of Kiva, to purchase a used motorcycle to provide good transportation for the entire family. Soeurn hopes to provide her family happiness and a comfortable situation through her hard work.
