Lay Huch is 26 years old. She is married and resides with one child in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in cultivating rice and breeding pigs for more than five years, earning approximately $6 daily. Her husband is a mechanic who earns about $8 each day.
Due to the difficulty with her family’s transportation, Lay Huch is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase would enable her to use the saved money on her transportation expenses to support the family.
In the future, she would like to expand her business and send her child to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
