Nat, 57, resides with her husband and three children in Kandal Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries for over six years, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband is a chef who earns about $6 per day. Three of her children are employed. They are garment and construction workers. They earn about $12 per day.
In order to improve her family's living conditions, Nat is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase more groceries to resell. By doing so, she would be able to generate more profit to support her family. In the future, she would like to expand her grocery store and help her youngest child get a bachelor's degree. Moreover, she plans to build a new house.
