A loan helped to purchase more groceries and other beverages to sell.

Sokhom's story

Sokhom is 48 years old, widowed, and has five children. She sells groceries and beverages, which she has been doing for two years. Three of her children are selling food. Insufficient capital and more competitors are her major challenges.

Sokhum requested a loan, which she will use to purchase more groceries and other beverages to sell in her store. Her goals are to earn more income from this business and change her family's living standard in the future.
