Ly is a 58-year-old married woman with six children. She has a small plantation where she grows rice and yams to sell for a profit. At the same time, Ly runs a small grocery store where she sells different grocery products and household goods in daily demand. She is happy because her spouse and children assist her greatly in her everyday activities.
To continue running her grocery store in a sustainable way, Ly needs a loan of KHR 4,000,000 to buy more products to sell in her store such as grocery products, snacks, sweets and other miscellaneous household items. With her profits, Ly hopes to pay for their daily meals and the children's education and save for the future needs of the family. She and her family rely on the good will of the lenders and will greatly appreciate their financial support, which allows her to maintain and develop her current business.
