Sam, age 53, operates a buy-and-sell recycled material business around her community Ang Snoul in Kandal province. From this business, she is able to earn approximately USD 2.50 per day to support her living. Sam has a life partner in her husband who works in the construction field to provide additional income for the family. They have been blessed with 2 school-age children who still need daily allowances from them.
With the sums of USD 700, Sam will use it to buy a used motorcycle for her husband to commute to his workplace every day without taking a taxi service any longer. Sam is very happy and grateful for the granted funds to better her living conditions.
