Vat is 73 years old, and a very industrious woman. She operates a farming business to earn income for her family. She is a widowed mother of two children, living together in Kampong Cham province.
Vat, at her age, still has ambition to go ahead in her current business, so she patiently works hard with what she can do to achieve her dream. Her children also serve her as her motivation to work out their plans.
She is now borrowing a loan of KHR 600,000 to invest in other business activity to double her income. This loan will be used to buy fishing materials such as boats, nets, hooks, and other traps for her son, so he can start fishing in this season.
She hopes this loan will be approved, and she promises to pay on time. She is hoping to achieve financial stability someday.
