      Bou Keo is married and resides with her husband and one young child who are in school in Prey Veng province. She and her husband opened a small construction shop selling sand, cements, bricks, and variety of construction material to the customers around the local market from her house. This couple has been starting this business since 2013, and they earn a good income as there is not too many competition.

      The construction materials such as sand cements, bricks, brick roof are mainly supply by the wholesaler from the provincial town, and the other construction materials such steel are mainly supply direct from Phnom Penh city which is they can have original price.

      With the constriction business, they are able to employ 6 construction workers to work with. To expand their business, they are requesting for a loan from KREDIT to enlarge their warehouse and reinvest on construction stock. They also expect for additional income after the loan for about 1,000 USD.
