Sokhoeurn is 52 years old. She is married and lives with five children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling fruit for more than four years, earning about $2 per day. Her husband is a boat repairer who earns about $3 daily. Three of her children are employed in a garment factory. They earn about $7 each day.
Sokhoeurn is requesting a loan of $800 to buy timber to repair her boat. By doing so, she will have a good boat to use for fishing in the rainy season. In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house.
