Ky, aged 40, resides in the Baray district with her spouse and some of her children. She and her spouse are raising their children in a small village; they own a few pieces of farmland for growing and harvesting rice.
Despite their hardship at the rice fields, for additional income, this couple is also in the furniture trading business. They seek quality furniture for individual clients, as the need arises.
Ky is asking for a loan that will surely help increase their income. She is borrowing additional capital of 1,000 USD to be invested in purchasing furniture for the purpose of trade. With a good income, she will be able to continue to educate her children up to college, so that they can become professionals and have a bright future someday.
