Sada is 42 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia.
She has been selling clothes for more than ten years, earning approximately $7 per day. Her husband is a construction worker who makes an income of $5 daily. Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Sada is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. This purchase will help her transport her clothes to sell in the village faster and much easier.
In the future, she would like to purchase a store to run a clothes shop in the market and help her children earn bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her house to make more it comfortable for her family.
