Mrs. Loeng T. (pictured here) sells ansorm (a kind of Cambodian cake made of rice paste and wrapped in banana leaves) in her village. She has been married since 2006. Her husband, Mr. Phalla Chan, is a construction worker. They live in a small village along National Road Number 5 about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh and have six children: three sons and three daughters.

In addition, the couple also grows rice. Loeng asked for a Kiva loan one time already; she now is asking for her second loan of $1,200 to purchase a motorcycle for commuting and she will also use a part of her loan to continue her farming business.
