Keum is 35 years old. She is a mother of two children and lives with her husband in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been selling vegetables for more than two years, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband runs the delivery service and tilling service. In order to improve her husband’s business, Keum is requesting a loan of $1100 to purchase a new walking tractor for her husband to run the service.
