Touch, 51, is married and resides with her husband and three children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in growing agricultural crops for over twenty years, earning approximately 5 USD per day. One of her children is employed by a company and earns approximately 4 USD per day.
Due to a lack of funds, Touch is requesting a loan of 750 USD to pay for her child’s wedding expenses. In the future, she would like to expand her agricultural business and support her youngest child's pursuit of a bachelor's degree. Moreover, she plans to rebuild her present house to make it much bigger and stronger and to provide better living conditions for her family.
