Saroeun, a 38-year-old widow residing with her three children in Kampong Speu Province, Cambodia, has been selling Khmer noodles for more than seven years, earning approximately $5 daily. Two of her children are employed in a garment factory, earning about $7 each day.

Due to a lack of funds, Saroeun is requesting a loan of $1000 to purchase timber and zinc to build a store for selling noodles. This money will help her provide a convenient place for her customers to shop. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store and help her youngest child earn a bachelor’s degree.
