Phin is 45 years of age, married and has two children. She lives with her husband and raises their children in a small village of Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. This family’s main income relies on their farming business. They particularly grow rice on their existing farmland, from which they can generate a total income of 3.50 USD each day. Phin’s oldest child is currently working in a garment industry in Phnom Penh to help the family financially while another is still attending school.
With her requested amount, Phin would like to purchase a motorcycle for household use. This vehicle will help her family in satisfying their transportation needs. Also, they can save a portion of their expenditures that they used to pay for transportation costs in the past. Hopefully, Phin is confident that through her commitment and hard work, she will be able to improve her standard of living gradually.
