Mom is 41 years old. She is married and resides with her three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries at home for more than two years, earning approximately $5 daily. Her husband is a driver who makes an income of $7 each day. Two of her children are employed. They earn about $15 per day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Mom is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase a store in the market to sell groceries. This purchase would enable her to obtain a better place for her business and generate more income to financially support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her youngest child earn a bachelor’s degree. She also wants to build a new house, if possible.
