Pum is a 43-year-old married woman who has been residing in the Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. Pum is in the business of selling a variety of things, including grocery items, spices, canned foods, noodles, and beverages in a local market of the province. Her husband is her motivation in this retail business. She earns an average of 5.00 USD per day.
Pum would like to refill her stock of merchandise again in order to satisfy her customers. Due to the lack of insufficient capital, she has applied for a loan of 250 USD to purchase more commodities such as spices, canned food, smoked fish, beverages, and other miscellaneous things. Through this purchase, Pum is hoping to develop her business and attract more customers.
