Morn is 61 years old. She is widowed and resides with her two children in Kampong Chnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling Khmer noodles (rice noodles topped with a green fish gravy, fresh vegetables and other greens) for over two years, earning approximately $2 per day. Her two children are employed as a dealer and a factory worker. They earn approximately $6 per day.
Due to the difficulty caused by her family’s living without a water supply, Morn is requesting a loan of $1,000 to pay to have a well dug in order to supply water for her family to use.
In the future, she would like to run a grocery store to generate extra income to support the family.
