Chheng Leang is 28 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband (who is joining her with the children in the picture) is a mechanic who earns approximately $12 daily.
In order to improve her family's finances, Chheng Leang is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase motor spare parts for her husband to use in his work as well as to resell. By doing so, she would earn more income for her family. In the future, she would like to expand her husband's repair shop and send her children to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
