Ran is 53 years old. She is widowed and resides with two children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling vegetables for more than ten years, earning approximately $10 daily. One of her children is a soldier who earns about $4 daily.
In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Ran is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase more vegetables to sell. By doing so, she would earn more income for the family.
In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house as soon as possible.
