Koeun is 35 years old and working very hard to pursue a better living standard. She manages a rice farming business and provides rice-milling services in a small village, Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She is married and has been blessed with four single children attending school.
Koeun plans to provide good opportunities of education to all of her children. She wants to see them earn a university degree and have well-paid jobs. Recently, Koeun’s milling machine was out of order because it is too old, so she could not run her business well and provide quick services to her customers.
To solve this matter and in order to maintain good quality service, Koeun would like to acquire additional capital of USD 1,000 to purchase a new milling machine. She hopes that she will be able to enhance her rice mill business in order to achieve her goal.
