Pen is 39 years old and has a spouse. They live together in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. Unfortunately, this couple doesn’t have any children, but they are hoping to have a child someday.
Pen and her husband own and work on their farmland which they had received from their parents as their heritage after they were married. They have been working in this type of business for over ten years. To add more to her income, Pen makes and sells a kind of Khmer cake, adjacent to her house.
The loan she is asking for is to buy a motorcycle for use to support her household, so that they can either take it for business or for individual use. Another part of the loan will be used to repair the broken areas of her house. Pen mentioned that this loan will be very helpful in improving her living conditions.
In the future, Pen hopes to work out plans and make her businesses achievable and profitable.
