Sophan is 40 years old. She is widowed and resides with three children in Kandal Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in cultivating rice and other agricultural crops for more than 20 years, earning approximately $6 daily. Sophan is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase a computer for her children to use in their studies. This would be very helpful in her children’s education.
