Ken is 25 years old, a single woman who permanently lives with her mother and siblings in Baray district, Kompong Tom province. She operates a small store in the village, selling grocery items like cookies, noodles, beverages, soaps, shampoos and household products to local people in the commune. She usually extends a friendly service to her customers, which is why there are many customers using her products. Typically she is able to make an average of 4.50 USD per day to contribute to support the family.
Ken is now looking for a loan in the sum of 1,500 USD to purchase a motorcycle for personal use. Also, with the remainder she will buy beverages, sweets, spices, canned goods and cosmetics to sell in her store to increase her merchandise. She hopes to receive this loan as her second loan so she is able to make improvements in her business and generate more income. Ken thanks you in advance for your kindness.
