Mom is 41 years old. She is married and resides with five children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fish paste and smoked fish for more than ten years, earning approximately $5 daily. Her husband is a construction foreman who makes an income of $5 per day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Mom is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase more fish paste and smoked fish to sell. By doing so, she would like to expand her business and help her children earn bachelor’s degree. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
