Chom's story

Chom, 31, lives in Baray district of Kompong Tom province with her husband and four school-aged children. She is in the rice farming business, selling fresh fish and at the same time fattening hogs to sell for additional income. She has been doing this for almost 12 years.

Chom would like to make improvements in her fish-selling business, and therefore she is asking for a loan of KHR 2,500,000 to purchase a boat with a motor for her husband, which he will use for fishing. These will help Chom increase the amount of fish she can sell from her rented booth, thus make more income to provide the family’s living needs. In the future, she hopes to expand her farming business and offers further education to all of her children.
