Tha is 28-years-old. She is married and resides with a three year-old child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been working in a garment factory for more than a year, earning approximately $5 per day. Her husband (who is joining her in the picture) is a construction worker who makes an income of $6 daily. Due to lack of funds, Tha is requesting a loan of $1,300 to purchase construction materials to build a new house. This money will help her provide better living conditions for the family. In the future, she would like to run an additional business to make more money and send her child to a good school.
