Nhoek is 40 years old, married, and has a lovely child who is attending school. She lives with her family in Kampong Chhnang province.
She helps her husband earn income by selling fresh fish in a local market of the province. Typically, she is able to make around USD 2.50 per day from this business. She has been involved in this since 2008.
Nhoek told us that she is experiencing difficulties in transportation due to the lack of vehicle for home use. She used to spend the daily allowance on transportation services every time she and her family wanted to get everywhere.
To deal with this matter, she would like to take out a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to purchase a used motorcycle for home use as well as for business. Also, with the remaining funds, she will purchase more fish to sell in her store.
In the future, she wants to enlarge her present store and expand her business.
