Lim is 37 years old. She is married and resides with seven children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband is a motor taxi driver who earns about $7 per day. One of her children is a security guard who earns about $2 daily.
In order to improve her family’s living condition, Lim is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase a motorbike for her son to run a taxi service. By doing so, her son would generate more income to support the family.
In the future, she would like to run a grocery store at home and help her children earn Bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she plans to fix some parts of her present house.
