Channy, 52, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She is a tailor. Her husband is a rice farmer. Two of her children are garment workers.
In order to increase her family income, Channy needs more funds to run a new business. Therefore, Channy requests a loan to purchase rice to resell when the price is higher. By doing so, she can get extra income to support her family. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store at home, build bathroom, and support her children to study until they get a Bachelor's degree.
