Chour is a resident living in Ponhea Lueu district, Kandal province. She is 26 years old, married and a mother of two children. She is a homemaker who is responsible for taking care of the family, educating her children at home and serving them nutritional foods. Her husband works as a paid laborer at a construction site and this serves as the family's major source of income.
Chour wanted to create another business opportunity to generate additional income for household, but she has insufficient funds to make it possible. That’s why she has applied for a loan of KHR 1,400,000 to buy a fishing boat and other materials needed for fishing activities. With her hard work and the help of this loan, she believes that someday she will attain success and provide a better life for her children.
