Sok Lim is married and blessed with one child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She is a Khmer traditional singer who sings in Cambodian marriage ceremonies. She earns about $5 per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is a barber who earns about $8 each day. Due to the difficulty in her family's transportation, Sok Lim is requesting a loan of $1500 purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would help her reduce the expenses of transportation. In the future, she would like to run her own music band and send her child to school.
