She has been working in a garment factory for more than a year, earning approximately $4 daily. Her husband earns a living by selling dharma books. He earns about $20 per day. Roeurn is requesting a loan for $500 to purchase more dharma books for him to sell. This will allow him expand his business and earn more money for the family.
