Hang is from Samraong Tong district, Kompong Speu province of Cambodia. She lives together with her spouse and two unmarried children. The rest of her children have settled down and started their own families. Hang and her spouse are in the same business. They cultivate a few plots of farmland in order to make their livelihoods. Instead of being free at home, Hang has also tried to involve herself selling Khmer cakes for additional profit. In the same manner, Hang’s husband devotes his spare time to trading potatoes and palm juice as a wholesale business. The difficulty he has experienced in his business is that he does not have a motorcycle to appropriately transport his products.
To compete against the challenge, Hang would like to acquire a loan amounting to USD 1,000 in order to purchase a motorcycle to support the current business of her husband. She believes that the loan will have a positive impact toward the achievement of their goals and allow them to move their family forward.
