Bun Thoeurn, 40, is married and resides with her husband and five children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She is a homemaker. Her husband runs the business of buying cattle for resale. He earns about 5 USD per day. One of her children is employed in a garment factory and earns about 3 USD per day. In order to improve her family’s living conditions, Bun Thoeurn is requesting a loan of 1,000 USD to raise capital for her husband's cattle business. By doing so, he would earn more profit to support the family. In the future, she would like to run a food store and help her children get their bachelor’s degrees.
