Vanna is 47 years old. She is married and resides with her four children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been working as a construction worker for more than a year, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband is a construction foreman. He earns about $10 each day. Three of her children are garment workers. They earn about $10 daily. Due to lack of funds, Vanna is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase construction materials to build fences for clients. This money will help her husband earn more profit. In the future, she would like to expand the business and help her youngest child earn a Bachelor’s degree.
