Kim L., 43, is a widow with two school-aged children. Living in the Kampong Cham, she typically makes about US$7.50 per day by selling porridge in the morning and dessert in the evening. However, she still looks after her disable mother. To earn more money, she needs a loan from CREDIT of US$1000 to make a new investment. She would use this loan to raise cows for sale.
