Raem is 51 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and seven children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
She and her husband have been working in agriculture for over 20 years. They have extensive experience and have been successful in their careers. They are involved in growing rice and fattening animals. Additionally, Raem’s husband is a construction foreman. Finally, three of her children are employed at a garment factory.
In order to improve the family economics, Raem is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase a trailer for her son to run a delivery service to generate more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her agricultural business, remodel her house and support her children while they study to earn bachelors degrees.
