Beng Hon is 60 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Kratie Province, Cambodia. She has been selling Khmer noodle and porridge for more than ten years, earning approximately $13 per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is a rice farmer who earns about $2 each day. One of her children is employed in a poultry farm. He earns about $4 per day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Beng Hon is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase mobile phones and spare parts to resell. This money will help her run an additional business and earn more income for her family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house.
