Sam Oeurn is 28 years old. She is married and resides with her husband and one child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than two years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is a coconut vendor who earns about $6 per day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Sam Oeurn is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorbike for her husband to carry coconuts to sell. This purchase will help her husband carry coconuts to sell in larger amounts and to earn more profit to support the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and help her child earn a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
