Voeurn is 42 years old. She is married and resides with two children in Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in cultivating rubber plant for more than ten years, earning approximately $30 per day. Her husband (who is also in the picture) helps her run the business. In order to improve her family’s livelihood, Voeurn is requesting a loan of $800 to purchase more farmland in order to expand her rubber plantation. By doing so, she would earn more income to financially support the family. In the future, she would like to rebuild her house to make it bigger and much stronger to provide better living conditions for her family, and to send her children to a good school.
