Lun is 31 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been working on a rubber plantation for more than a year, earning about $20 daily.
To improve her family’s finances, Lun is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase farmland to use for cultivating cassava. This money will help her generate additional income to support the family.
In the future, she would like to expand her farming and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new and bigger house.
