Eang, age 54, is an entrepreneurial woman who has strong determination to aspire to something better for her family. She has a common-law relationship with her husband, who is also her business partner, and she has given birth to two children who are attending school and still need her support.
Eang and her husband help each other in their farming business to ensure a standard of living and achieve their goal. In addition, Eang has operated a small store from her home and sells grocery items, spices, home use products, and soft drinks to satisfy her customers in the community. She wanted to increase the kinds of products she sells in her village, but she did not have enough capital to do it. In this connection, Eang wishes for a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to buy additional grocery items to sell in her store and increase her merchandise. She believes that with this loan, she will be able to develop her business. And she hopes that she can see her children grow up and finish their studies.
