Thongny, 32, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling clothes for over two years and is successful in her career. Her husband is a tuk-tuk taxi driver. In order to improve her husband's business, Thongny is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase a new tuk-tuk for her husband to run as a taxi and change the old one because it breaks down often. In the future, she would like to purchase a house in Phnom Penh and send her children to a good school.
