Sam Orn is 27 years old. She is married, blessed with one child and she lives in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband runs the taxi service (motor taxi). He earns about $15 per day. Because the present motorbike is old, Sam Orn is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to run the taxi service. This purchase will help her husband attract new customers and earn more income to support the family.
In the future, she would like to run an additional business to generate more income and help her child earn a bachelor’s degree. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it much stronger and provide convenient living conditions for her family.
