Kunthea's story

Kunthea is a widowed woman, and she has a business selling groceries, located in the area of Baribour district, Kampong Chhnang. Due to the business, she's able to raise her two children and can afford to send them to school. She is 42 years of age and has been in this business for more than five years, and can earn approximately 6 USD per day.

Now, she is asking for a loan in the amount of 6,000,000 KHR to purchase merchandise to sell in her store, such as spices, shampoo, soap, canned items, snack food, soft drinks, and miscellaneous products. She hopes to make her store full of groceries to sell that will satisfy her customers’ needs.

With the income she will earn from her business, she will provide for her children's basic needs in school and their daily food. She strongly believes that, through the help of the loan and her perseverance, she will lift her family out of poverty and pursue a good standard of living.
