Ory lives in Kampongcham province with her family, and she and her husband earn about $7 a day by selling food. The couple has two children, both of whom attend school. Every month, Ory and her husband spend $85 on food, $5 on electricity, $10 on school fees, $15 on transportation and $10 on other items. She is applying for a loan for $600 to buy a motorbike to use to carry the food she and her husband sell. Their goal is to earn an income that's large enough to care for their family and educate their children through at least high school.
