Veith is 49 and is married. She resides with her husband in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. For the past ten years, the couple has been running a fruit-selling business and they earn approximately 30 USD each day.
Veith is requesting a 500 USD loan to improve her business by purchasing a truck to transport her produce to market. This will enable her to carry fruits faster and in larger quantities. In the future, Veith will use her profits to further expand her business.
