Bunnat is 34 years old. She is married and resides with one child in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is an arc welder who earns about $6 per day.
She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up animals for more than ten years, earning about $4 daily. Because of the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Bunnat is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce transportation expenses.
In the future, she would like to run an additional business and send her children to a good school. Moreover, she hopes to build a new house as soon as possible.
