A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more tables, chairs and utensils.

Chea's story

Chea S., age 55, is a wedding chef who resides with his wife and one child in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He typically makes around US$4 each day. His wife, Phoung Soeun, 53, for whom he will use this loan, is a true entrepreneur and has had a business selling rice and porridge from her home since 1999. On average, she brings in US$8.5 per day. This couple also has support from their child who works as security officer.

Phoung Soeun's business selling rice, noodle and porridge is making more profits to improve the standard of living. There are a few vendors who operate the same business as her, so to attract more customers she needs to expand her business by purchasing more chairs and more utensils and building a bigger stand.
