Mom is 32 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia.
She has been involved in growing agricultural crops for more than 7 years, earning approximately 2 US dollars per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is a coconuts and palm fruits vendor who earns about 6 USD daily.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Mom is requesting a loan of 1000 USD to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce her transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to expand her business and send her children to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
