A loan helped to buy rice, palm sugar and prahok (salt fish) to sell.

Hoeun's story

Hoeun is a married mother of an only son, who lives in the Kampong Chhnang province in Cambodia. Since 1998, she has run a business selling rice, palm sugar and prahok (prahok is salty fish kept in the jar for about a month or longer and needs to be steamed to have with fresh vegetables). Her husband is 47 years old and works as a worker in road construction. Her son is 18 years old and works as a carpenter.

Hoeun has decided to take out a loan because she is lacking the finances to buy rice, palm sugar and prahok to sell. With this loan, she will be able to improve her business and earn more income.

In the future, she is going to buy a motorcycle for her son for commuting to work. She also hopes that her son will pass his exam to work in Korea.
