Noeurn is 31 years old. She is married and resides with one child in Kampong Chhnong province, Cambodia. Noeurn and her husband are farmers in the village since 2010 (they are both in the picture above) earning an income of USD 5 per day. Each month, she has to spend on food USD 99 and USD 30 for other expenses. Noeurn is requesting a loan of USD 1500 to buy fertilizer for her farming. By doing so, she would generate more profit to support her family. In the future, she wishes to buy a truck for transporting her vegetables easily, have a big house and help her child to earn a bachelor’s degree.
