Kimyet is 34 years old. She is married and resides with her two children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been working in the garment factory for more than four years, earning approximately $4 daily. Her husband is a construction foreman who makes an income of $10 each day. Due to his lack of construction tools, Kimyet is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase a mortar for her husband to use in his work. This purchase will help him work smoothly and faster. In the future, she would like expand the construction business and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. In addition, she is planning to build a new house shortly.
