Rin is 30 years old and a resident from the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. She is married and has two young children who still need her support and daily allowances.
She is a farmer, cultivating rice for sale each harvest season. At the same time, Rin is also in the business of selling used clothes in the village for additional income, earning around 2.00 USD per day.
To increase clothes to sell in her store, she would like to take out a loan of 600.00 USD to purchase used clothes. This can satisfy her customers and also add more customers to her business. She hopes that with the help of the loan she will be able to upgrade her living standard and uplift her family out of poverty someday.
