Kim is 49 years and a responsible mother of two school-aged children. She and her spouse raise their children in small community of Kampong Chhnang province. Kim has a business position and manages a stall in a local market where she sells a variety of fish. She has been in this occupation for almost 10 years, earning approximately 13,000 KHR per day. Kim’s husband finances the family with income generated from trading poultry and animals.
To help Kim’s husband with transportation support in his trading activities, Kim is asking for a loan in the sum of 4,000,000 KHR to purchase a motorcycle. This purchase will enable her husband in transporting his products to the marketplaces. She hopes that someday her family-owned businesses will grow and become a viable source of income as they continuously strive to improve.
