Kanha is 32 years old, married, and has one child. She resides in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been employed in a rubber plantation for more than a year, earning approximately $14 a day.
In order to improve her family’s finances, Kanha is requesting a loan for $1,500, which she will use to purchase rubber to sell and a motorbike for transporting rubber. By doing so, she can earn additional income to support her family. In the future, Kanha would like to buy farmland for cultivating rubber and send her child to a good school. She also wants to build a new house as soon as possible.
