Noch is 58 years old. She is married and resides with five children in Takeo Province, Cambodia. She has been involved in growing rice and fattening up animals for more than twenty years, earning approximately $3 per day. Her husband helps her run the business. Her children are employed in a garment factory. They earn about $25 each day.
Due to the difficulty in her family’s transportation, Noch is requesting a loan of $1500 to purchase a motorbike for commuting. By doing so, she would be able to reduce her transportation expenses. In the future, she would like to run a grocery store and rebuild her house to make it more comfortable for her family.
