Thavy is 34 years old. She is married and lives with her family in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been running a tailoring shop for over five years, earning approximately $9 each day.
In order to improve her business, Thavy is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase cloth to use for making more clothes to sell. This purchase will help expand her business and earn extra income to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her shop and build a new house.
