Dieng is 51 years old and a married mother of three children. Two of her children are employed to help the family financially. The main income of the family completely depends on a business operated by Dieng in a local market in Phnom Penh. She sells breakfast and lunch. This helps her generate a decent income to support her family financially. Dieng still needs to improve and expand her food store and thereby attract more customers to buy her food.
Dieng would like to ask for a loan through HKL to purchase a motorcycle, which will be used to transport items back and forth to the marketplaces as well as to satisfy her household transportation needs. Deing appreciates receiving this loan to better her living conditions. She will pay her loan back in full and punctually. In the future, Dieng hopes to make her business more profitable and continuously support the education of her last-born child.
