Chreoun is 46 years old and married. She is a loving mother who is responsible for five children. She lives with her husband and children in a small village in the Baray district, in the province of Kompong Tom.
Chreoun is a very hardworking farmer who raises pigs for the main income of the family. Her husband transports and sells firewood from place to place to ensure good living conditions. One of her sons always goes along with his father to sell the firewood at the marketplace. Her two daughters are now working in a garment factory in Phnom Penh.
Chreoun wants to help her son in his transportation business. This is why she decided to borrow a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to purchase a used motorcycle for her son to use in his business. She hopes that this new business will be successful and will help the family in their financial solvency. In the future, she will continue to support her children’s education and help them earn university degrees.
