Vanna is 38 years old. She is married and resides with her two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been a worker in a factory in Takeo province since 2010, earning USD 3 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who earns about USD 10 per day. Each month, she has to spend on food USD 15, utility expense USD 5, and other expenses around USD 30.
In order to improve her husband's business, Vanna is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase construction supplies. She hopes this loan will help their family earn more profit to support their living standard. In the future, she hopes she can get a new big house, expand her husband's business to become better, and support her children to get a high education.
