Vanna, 42, is widowed and resides with her father and one child in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She and her child are employed in rubber plantation. They earn USD 8 per day, approximately. In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Vanna is requesting a loan of USD 1,000 to purchase rubber plant seeds and fertilizer for growing rubber plants to sell. By doing so, she would be able to generate extra income to support the family. In the future, she would like to use further profit to expand her agricultural business
