Moa is 60 years old and the single mother of four grown-up children. She currently lives with her two single children in her own house in Kandal province, while the other two have settled down for marriage already.
To make a livelihood, she is in the business of restoring clothes from her home, raising fish in a pond, and also making and selling fermented fish paste ("prahok" in Khmer) during the shallow-water season of the year for additional income.
With the loan she has requested from HKL, she aims to invest in the purchase of salt and small fish for making fermented fish. Also she will use the remaining balance to buy feed for fattening her fish.
She believes that she will make a good profit from this investment as she strives to work hard. She thanks lenders for this constant support, awaits your kindness, and relies on your generosity.
