Ry's story

Ry is 55 years old. She is married and resides with three children in Kampong Chhnang Province, Cambodia. She has been selling groceries for more than three years, earning approximately $4 daily. Her husband is a driver. In addition, he is involved in growing lotus. He earns about $6 daily. One of her children is a construction worker who earns about $3 each day. Ry is requesting a loan of $1500 to pay for passport expenses. This money will help her children go to work in Thailand legally. In the future, she would like to purchase a car to carry vegetables to sell from Kampong Chhnang to Phnom Penh and rebuild her house to make it more convenient for her family.
