Mon, 54, is married and resides with her husband and five children in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. She and her husband are ice vendors. Two of her children are employed at the garment factory. Currently, she has an old truck which carries ice to sell to the clients and now the truck is broken down. Mon is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to pay for her truck reparation. By doing so, she can easily carry ice to sell and go further to get more clients. In the future, she would like to build a new house and send her children to a good school.
