Chan Roth is 24 years old. She is a mother of two children and resides with her mother and her husband in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up pigs for more than 10 years, earning approximately 3 USD per day. Her husband is excavator driver who earns about 10 USD per day. Her children are still in her care.
In order to improve her family’s finance, Chan Roth is requesting a loan of 1,300 USD to purchase more farmland to use for growing rice. This money will help her expand her farming business and earn more income to support the family. In the future, she would like to run grocery store to earn additional income to support the family.
