Cheom, aged 53, is a married woman and has eight children. She makes a living by selling breakfast to local people in her area of Ponhea Leue district, Kandal province. She sells pork porridge and Khmer noodles and earns a net profit of 20,000 KHR per day. She has been in this business for eight years and it serves as the family’s primary source of income.
Cheom wanted to create another business opportunity to generate additional income for household, but she has insufficient funds to make this possible. As a result, she has applied for a loan of 1,400,000 KHR to buy a fishing boat and other materials needed for fishing activities. This new business will be handled by her son. She thanks lenders for this constant support. She awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.
