Im is 68 years old. She is a widow and resides with her son in the Kampong Chhnang Province of Cambodia. Her son is a construction worker, who typically earns approximately $3 per day.

To earn a living, for more than ten years she has been making clay pots, which she sells for profits. By doing so, she typically earns approximately $3 per day.

In order to improve her business, Im is requesting a loan in the amount of $250 to purchase clay and firewood, which would be used to produce more pots to sell. The additional revenue she expects to generate as a result of the loan will help her expand the business and provide more income for the family.
