Sokha is 30 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Seim Reap Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been working as farm workers for more than three years, earning approximately $6 per day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Sokha is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase a motorbike for carrying firewood to sell. By doing so, she would earn extra income for her family. In the future, she would like to run an additional business and send her children to a good school.
