Phavy, 48, is married, and resides with her husband and four children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing her agricultural business for over ten years, has extensive experience, and is successful in her career. She is involved in growing rice and fattening cattle. She earns approximately $2 per day. Her husband is a driver who earns about $4 per day.
Due to her current income being low, Phavy is requesting a loan of $1200 US to purchase a tuk tuk (a motorcycle-based taxi) for her husband to run a taxi service. This purchase would enable him to earn more income to support the family.
In the future, she would like to run a grocery store at home and help her youngest son get a bachelor's degree. Moreover, she hopes to rebuild her present house to make it bigger and more convenient, improving her family's living conditions.
