Soeng is 30 years old and the loving father of two children. He has been a rice farmer for nearly 14 years to supplement his spouse's income. He usually earns about KHR 20,000 per day, which he uses to pay for meals and other home expenses.
He is now asking for a loan of KHR 1,000,000 to buy grocery items for his wife’s store, where she sells many different kinds of products, such as snacks, sweets, drinks, and other miscellaneous items.
Through the loan help, she will be able to sustain her selling business and increase sales. They hope that someday they will become financially stable and that their children will have a bright future.
