Sokhon is 65 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia.
She has been selling mix cakes for more than three years, earning approximately $4 daily. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is a construction worker. He makes an income of $8 per day. One of her children is an English teacher who makes an income of $4 each day.
Due to lack of funds, Sokhon is requesting a loan of $500 to purchase a laptop for her daughter who studies at the university. This purchase will help her daughter improve her study.
In the future, she would like to expand her business and build a new house as soon as possible.
