Ra is 38 years old. She is married and resides with four children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in cultivating rice and fattening up animals for more than ten years, earning approximately $2 per day. Her husband runs a business purchasing cattle to resell. He earns about $30 daily. One of her children is a clay pot vendor who earns about $4 each day. Ra is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase a trailer for her child to carry the clay pots to sell. This purchase will help her expand her target market and earn more income for the family. In the future, Ra hopes to build a new house and help her children earn higher education.
