Roeun's story

Roeun is a 31-year-old mother who is working very hard because she wishes to experience a better living standard. She manages a rice farming business in Batey district of Kompong Cham province. Her husband is also working in the same fields to provide basic needs for their children. Together, this couple has given birth to two children who are still at school.

Roeun aims to help her children in their education until they finish their university degree, so she has to generate more income to save gradually from this present time onwards. As a result, she would like to obtain a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 KHR to add to her savings to establish a new business – she will purchase merchandise such as snack foods, sweets, shampoos, spices, canned items, noodles, beverages, and other miscellaneous household things to sell from her own house. Roeun hopes to yield a better income from this type of business, so that she can save more for her children’s future education.
