Cheng is 43 years old. She is widowed and resides with her mother in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in raising ducks for more than a year, earning approximately $5 daily. In order to improve her family’s finances, Cheng is requesting a loan of $1,500 to purchase more ducks to feed in order to produce eggs to sell. This purchase will help her generate more income to support her family. In the future, she would like to expand her poultry farm and rebuild her house to make it more comfortable for the family.
