Ny, 56, is married and resides with her husband in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, an area which is well known for its historical tourism sites (ancient temples: Angkor Wat, Bayon, Banteay Srey……). She has been running a souvenir shop for over ten years and is successful in her career. Her husband is a policeman.
In order to improve her business and generate more income to support the family, Ny is requesting a loan of USD 700 to purchase more souvenirs to sell to tourists who come to visit the Khmer traditional temples in Siem Reap. In the future, she would like to rent one more store to sell souvenirs and to rebuild her present house to be much stronger in order to provide better living conditions for the family.
