Hen is 56 years old. She is widowed and is a resident of Kratie Province, Cambodia. She has four children and earns her living by selling groceries. Approximately, she makes $10 daily. All of her children are employed. They make an income of $15 each day.
To improve her family’s finances, Hen is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase more groceries and vegetables to resell.
