Neth is 64 years old. She is widowed and resides with one child in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been selling Khmer noodle for more than 7 years, earning approximately 4 USD per day. Her child is employed and earns about 3 USD per day.
In order to improve her family’s finance, Neth is requesting a loan of 1,500 USD to purchase clothes to resell. By doing so, she would earn more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and rebuild her present house to make it bigger and more convenient for her family.
