Mrs. Yoem is 46 years old and married with five children. Presently she lives with them and her husband in Kompong Speu province. She and her spouse have been involved in farming for almost 19 years. Together, they typically earn around $2.00 per day.
Yoem is currently asking for a microloan of $500 to buy a motorcycle so her family can have the best possible transportation service. She hopes that lenders will not reject her first loan request.
