Kim Chhieng is 58 years old, widowed, and has two children. Her daughter is a factory labor and her son is a solider. She lives in Kampong Chhnang Province. To earn a living, she runs a grocery store, earning $11 per day.
Kim Chhieng would like to enlarge her grocery store, so she is requesting a loan for $1,000, which she will use to buy more drinks in order to reach more customers. In the future, she hopes she can build a gate for her house.
