Nguon, aged 33, is a resident living in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham. Since she got married, Nguon has been in a rice farming business as the main source of income to support her family. She is responsible for two children who will be enrolled in school soon. Aside from rice husbandry, Nguon is also busy with her retail store, where she sells fried bananas to people in her community for extra income. She always wishes for a higher income so as to offer basic living needs and a good education to her children especially.
In the present, Nguon would like to request a loan through HKL in order to purchase a used motorcycle, which will be used by her husband to start a transportation business. Also, it’ll be used for home use to reduce transportation costs as she doesn't own a proper vehicle. This has the effect of reducing her income. The motorcycle will also provide their customers with comfortable transportation. She hopes to increase her household income gradually through their hard work.
