Ri, 54, is widowed and resides with seven children in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. She has been raising pigs for over three years, earning approximately 3 USD per day. Four of her children are employed at a garment factory and earn approximately 12 USD per day.
Due to the difficulty of traveling to work, Ri is requesting a loan of 1000 USD to purchase a motorbike for her children to commute to work. This purchase would enable her children to go to work on time and use the money saved on transportation expenses to support the family.
In the future, Ri would like to rebuild her present house to make it much bigger and stronger and to provide a better living conditions for her family.
