Kim Heng is 27 years old. She is married with two children and lives with her family in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fish for more than ten years, earning approximately $10 daily. Her husband is a construction worker who earns about $5 each day.
In order to improve her business, Kim Heng is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase more fish to sell. This money will help her expand her business and earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to use her profits to expand the business further and help her children earn their bachelor’s degree.
