Sreypov is 21 years old. She is single and lives with her father in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been teaching foreign language for more than two years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her father sells coffins; he earns about $10 daily. In order to improve her family’s finances, Sreypov asks for a loan of $1000 to purchase shoes to sell at home. This money will help her acquire the ability to run a new business and earn more income for the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and rebuild her house to make it much stronger.
