Soem is a 70-year-old widowed mother of two children who lives in her own home in the Baray district of Kampong Thom province. Soem devotes herself to a farming business and also sells natural medicines for additional income. Her children always help maintain the family's plot of land and help her to sell natural medicines in the markets.
Soem would like to improve her current business, so she has requested a loan of 2,000,000 KHR to buy natural medicines to sell. With the help of the loan, she hopes to sustain her current business and boost her income and earnings. She is very pleased and thankful for this help and promises to pay back all of the money.
