Thoeurn is 52 years old. She is widowed and resides with four children in Kampot Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up pigs for more than twenty years, earning approximately $3 daily. All of her children are employed. They earn about $20 each day.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Thoeurn is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to expand her business and rebuild her house to make it more convenient for her family.
