Trorb, 32, is married, and resides with her husband and three children in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, an area which is well known for its historical tourism sites (ancient temples: Angkor Wat, Bayon, Banteay Srey, etc).
She is a firewood vendor. Her husband is a drum producer. All of her children are still in school. Trorb is requesting a loan of USD 1000 to purchase a lathe for her husband to produce more drums to sell to his clients. In the future, she would like to expand her husband's business, build a new house and support her children to study until they can get a Bachelors degree.
