Yorn, 52, is married and resides with her husband and one school-aged child in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in growing agricultural crops for over twenty years, earning approximately USD 5 per day. Additionally, she sells groceries at home to generate extra income for the family.
In order to improve the family’s economy, Yorn is requesting a loan of USD 300 to purchase more groceries to sell to make more profit for supporting the family. In the future, she would like to expand her business and support her child to study higher.
