Sok Ny, 37, is married and resides with her husband and four children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing agricultural crops for over twenty years, earning approximately USD 2 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who earns about USD 4 per day. Three of her children are employed as garment workers and a construction worker. Approximately, they earn USD 8 per day.
Due to difficulty with the family’s transportation, Sok Ny is requesting a loan of USD 1300 to purchase a motorbike to commute. This purchase would enable her to use the money saved on her transportation expenses to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her agricultural business and rebuild her present house to make it bigger and stronger to provide convenient living conditions for the family.
