Saroeurn, 38, is married and resides with her husband and five children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in breeding pigs for over a year, earning approximately USD 3 per day. Her husband runs the business of purchasing junk materials to resell. He earns approximately USD 6 per day.
In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Saroeurn wants to run an additional business. Therefore, Saroeurn requests a loan of USD 1,000 to rent farmland to start potato cultivation. This money will help her acquire security in the business.
In the future, she would like to purchase a new motorbike for her husband to carry junk materials to sell and also would like to help her children get Bachelor’s degrees. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it more comfortable for her family’s living.
