Tang is 22 years old. She is married and resides with one child in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries for more than a year, earning approximately $10 daily. Her husband is a rice farmer who earns about $13 each day. In order to improve her family’s finances, Tang is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase farmland to use for cultivating rice. This purchase will help her expand her farming business and earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her store and send her child to school.
