Put H. is 28 years old and sells Khmer silk clothes by transporting them to customers' homes. She buys them from the manufacturer and then resells them for a profit. She has been in this business since 2003, and currently earns around $10 per day. Her husband, Mr. Pheng Kreal, is 41 years old and works cooking for wedding parties. The couple has two children, both of whom are teenagers. They both work hard with the business to support the family's living expenses.
So far, her business is doing well and she needs to expand it to make more profits. Therefore, Put H. would like to request a loan to purchase more silk clothes for resale. The loan will help to improve her business.
