Kimyan is 37 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. To earn a living, her husband is a security guard and a construction worker when he is free. He makes an income of $7 per day.
Due to lack of funds, Kimyan is requesting a loan of $1,500 to purchase a plot of land. This purchase will help her obtain a good place to build a house. In addition, she will run a food store at her house to generate more income for the family. In the future, she would like to send her children to a good school.
