Sar is 27 years old and a married woman. She has been operating a rice farming business to generate her income while her husband works in the construction field. She has been in her business for over 10 years. She earns an income that barely seems to cover her daily costs. She usually uses her income for food and allowances for her only child.
Due to the need for capital to support her husband’s business, Sar decided to ask for a loan of KHR 2,000,000 to purchase construction supplies, which will enable her husband to provide his construction services efficiently. She hopes to send her child to a good university in the future.
