Malis is 31 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than three years, earning approximately $4 per day. Her husband is a tourism agent who makes an income of $5 each day.
To improve her family’s livelihood, Malis is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase farmland for cultivating rice and vegetables. By doing so, she would be able to generate additional income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her farming business and to send her children to a good school.
