Sarorn is 56 years old. She is widowed and resides with four children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been selling food for more than ten years, earning approximately $15 per day. Two of her children are employed. They earn about $11 each day.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Sarorn is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her reduce her transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to expand her store and help her children earn bachelor’s degree. Moreover, she wants to build a new house.
