What would you buy if you had money?

Tol Sopheaktra, 28, finance officer
“I would buy a flat, and I have two strategies to get it: save money in a bank account or buy a house using a loan.”

Pich Sreypov, 21 years old, student at the Institute of Technology in Cambodia
“As a student, I should study hard to make sure I can find a good job that can allow me to make some profit in future. I intend to work for two or three years and then start my own business.”

Ly David, 15, grade 10 student at Hun Sen Serey Peap High School
“I would like a luxury car. I need to study hard in order to find a good job. Recently I’ve been studying Chemistry, Biology, Physiology and Maths because I want to become a doctor.”

Noum Malay, 21, fourth year student at the University of Health and Science
“What I would like to buy in future is a villa. In order to get it, I have to find a good job, with a proper salary. When I have some money saved, then I can start a business to get more money. Before I spend on a house I need to have a clear idea of what kind of business I would like to start."

Nou Makara, 22, online cosmetics seller
“Land is what I wish to have. I have started selling cosmetics online, and if the business goes well I am thinking about opening maybe up to ten more branches, and have them all run smoothly. If I manage to do that, then I can get whatever I want.”
