Koemly is 28 years old. She is single and lives with her family in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. She has been making metal items (bracelets, silver pots) for more than three years, earning approximately $4 per day.
Due to lack of funds, Koemly is requesting a loan of $1,000 to pay for her brother’s tuition fee. This money will help her brother earn a bachelor’s degree and find a well-paid job. In the future, she would like to expand her business and rebuild her house as soon as possible.
