A loan helped to purchase more beverages, groceries, and a refrigerator for her business.


Chhoum's story

Chhoum is 41 years old and a married woman with four children. She is selling beverages and groceries. Her husband is selling smoked fish. Chhoum has been running this business for around 11 years.

She will use this loan to purchase more beverages, groceries, and a refrigerator for her business. Her goals are to expand her business and provide a higher education for her children so that they can obtain good jobs in the future.

Fluctuation in the price of materials, customers leaving the area, and more competitors are her major challenges.
