To, forty-seven, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in an agricultural business for over ten years, have an extensive experience, and are successful in their career. They are involved in growing rice and fattening up pigs to sell. Approximately, they earn USD 10 per day.
Due to the family's transportation difficulties, To is requesting a loan of USD 1,200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the money she saves on transport to support her family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her children get bachelor degrees. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it much stronger and to provide a better living conditions for the family.
