Mrs Nov Sarim is a 40 year old widow and mother of 4 children, and lives in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. In order to supplement the entire family's expense, she runs a small grocery store on a roadside of her village, which makes on average about $3.50/day in revenue. Three of her children are students, but the rest are too young to attend school. To increase the size of her business and keep investing in her children's education, Nov Sarim is asking for $800 to purchase more grocery items to satisfy her clients' needs. In the future, Sarim hopes to have enough money to maximize her store with a great variety of products.
Lidia Rufina Montoya
My name is Lidia Montoya and I have dedicated myself to selling new clothes for women, men and children such as t-shirts, button down shirts, blouses, pants, jeans, shorts, caps, socks and shoes. I have been involved in this activity for the last four years, with very good clients and I am able to sell my products in different private and state offices. At this moment I need more inventory in order to offer a better variety of products that are selling well. With the profits I will be able to cover the costs of expenditures as well as have a bit of money to remodel my home in the future.
Irina is married with two children – her daughter is 13 and her son is only a year and a half old. She and her husband have run a vinyl window installation services business for six years. She gets about 50 orders a month. Every order can require up to 10 window installations. Currently, Irina and her husband make about $2,000 – 2,500 in net profit a month. Irina’s business is constantly growing. One of the advantages she has in the competitive windows market is her direct connection to vinyl window manufacturing companies. Her little office is very popular in the small town of Izyum. Irina can hardly handle the high demand she’s facing now. Irina realizes that lending services are very helpful to her business. Loans allow her to increase her turnover capital and expand her business. She would like to help more people make their homes comfortable and cozy , so she is requesting a loan for $500 to hire two more work crews who would help install vinyl windows and blinds. She believes this will not only help her business grow, but will also provide jobs for many unemployed people in her little town. Irina is hoping to use generated profit to buy a more spacious house for her family and improve their living standards.
