Sopheap is 36 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries for more than ten years, earning approximately $10 per day. Her husband is a farmer who earns about $2 each day. In order to improve her family’s living conditions, Sopheap is requesting a loan of $750 to purchase more groceries to sell. By doing so, she will earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her store and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house to provide a higher quality of life for her family.
