Ket, 51, is a hardworking and responsible mother of six children living in Kompong Cham province.
To earn a living, Ket is involved in agricultural businesses such as cultivating rice crops and raising poultry at home. She typically earns in the neighborhood of $2 per day.
Ket is going to prepare a wedding party for her son soon, yet due to the lack of capital, Ket cannot manage the party as well as expected. So now she turns to our lenders to ask for funds to prepare her son’s wedding party that will be held in the next few weeks. She is appreciative and she promises to pay her loan back punctually.
