Kunthea, 30, is married and resides with her husband and two children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She and her husband have been involved in agricultural business for over ten years, earning approximately 3 USD per day. Additionally, her husband earns approximately 8 USD per day as a driver.
Because of her family’s transportation difficulties, Kuthea is requesting a loan of 1000 USD to purchase a motorbike for family use and to help with her husband's commute.
In the future, Kunthea would like to run a grocery store at home to generate extra income to support her family, rebuild her present house, and help her children get bachelor's degrees.
